I have thoroughly enjoyed the 4 day doula preparation course I have just finished in Leeds. Sophie was our trainer and she was fantastic; extremely knowledgeable, a wonderful storyteller and able to facilitate a group skilfully. Just need to finish the post-course work and get stuck in now! I’ve come away feeling very inspired. Thank you NB!

Breastfeeding at six weeks
31.3% more women were still breast feeding exclusively at six weeks.
Just finished my course this week and absolutely loved it. Florence and Sophie are knowledgeable and inspiring. They deliver the course in a very mindful way, always from a gentle and kind approach, so that you really ‘get’ what being a Doula is all about, and what it might feel like when faced with a variety of different situations as a Doula. I would highly recommend this course to others wanting to become a Doula.

Absolute wonderment! Adored every second. Sophie is an amazing teacher and the course is fantastic. Anyone wanting to be a doula should attend the Nurturing Birth course, it’s a real education.
My course to become a Doula was by far the best decision I ever made! Being a Doula has completely changed my life; it helped me to understand and find peace with my own births and pass my new found knowledge on to other people. I wish everyone had a Doula, Nurturing Birth are life-changers!
