Advanced Doula Mentoring
For those doulas who are more experienced, or who have completed an Initial Doula Mentoring Programme, we offer our Advanced Doula Mentoring Programme – one-off or a season of face-to-face/Skype sessions. These sessions offer all the above benefits but can give a doula:
- Opportunity to explore any specific challenges that have arisen with clients
- Reflection on the journey so far and goal-setting for the future
- Renewal of confidence
- Safe, non-judgmental place to debrief and discuss life/work issues
Our mentors are experienced doulas gifted in empowering and encouraging others and have been carefully selected and trained by the Nurturing Birth mentoring team. All Nurturing Birth Mentors are mentored themselves and fully follow our vision: “to nurture, inform and empower Doulas and families”. Many have lived/worked in other countries and speak different languages. On signing up for mentoring a doula will have access to the full list of mentors available and be supported in choosing the right mentor.
Both mentors and mentees receive guidance on how to make the most of the mentoring programme.
When you choose a UK-based mentor the total cost for the Initial Mentoring Programme is £350 – a booking fee of £75 followed by 5 payments of £55, due prior to each face-to-face session with your mentor. The cost for one-off sessions of mentoring on the Advanced Programme is £55, with a reduction for those booking a season of more than 3 sessions.
