  • Labor and Birth Support
  • Postpartum Support Doula
  • Emergency Birth skills to include emergency complications.

Successful completion is based of one-to-one evaluation and participation in scenarios during the 2-day course.


Herbal Medics Academy (HMA) offers a comprehensive Doula Certification Program that combines practical doula knowledge with critical emergency childbirth skills.  Students cover an extensive course curriculum of pregnancy, birth and postpartum care and herbal support for women during pregnancy during the doula certification training.
Goals of the HMA Doula/Birth Worker Training:

  • Create Doulas who are prepared to support their community. At the completion of the course,  an HMA Doula will be ready to start working as a doula as an independent or with an organization/group for income or as a volunteer.
  • Create Doula/Herbalists who are proficient in herbal support during the childbearing year. At the completion of the course an HMA Doula will be able to provide herbal counseling for women during the childbearing year.
  • Create Emergency Birth Workers who are ready and trained to support their community during a disaster or SHTF situation. At completion of the program, an HMA Doula will be able to provide Disaster Relief as a Doula/Emergency Birth Worker
  • Create a group of Doula/Emergency Birth Workers who are willing to assist at Herbal Medics Academy relief programs. At the completion of the course HMA Doulas will be able to assist in HMA programs.

Those who successfully complete the program will be prepared to provide Doula support to a woman and her family during prenatal, birth and postpartum. As the graduate will have a strong foundation as an herbalist specializing in the childbearing year, herbal services can be intertwined with services as a Doula.
