Kindly note that during the course of 2020, we have had an overwhelming amount of interest from women wanting to do our course.  As a result, some of our first semester classes in 2021 are already fully booked.  Please contact us though, as we do sometimes have spots that become available. 

Our fees are R4500.

Covid is still impacting the work of doulas in many hospitals, this has also impacted the practical side of the training, as you will need to get experience supporting mothers in labour as part of the course.

Kindly note that we are currently not doing training in KZN due to Government facilities not allowing doulas to volunteer or mentor training doulas.  The practical side of training is essential to completing the course.  We are also needing to try and find a venue for training, but due to Covid, have not been able to confirm anything.  Please email us however, and we will keep you updated as soon as we have anything positive to report.  info@wombs.org.za
