For those who are new to the doula role, wherever and whenever you took a course, we want to nurture you and give you a safe space in which to explore and develop your business.
Experience shows us that new doulas often need support and motivation in the following areas:
- Finding clients
- Looking at life/work balance
- Reflecting on client experiences
- Discussing difficult jobs or relationships
- Coming to an understanding of personal and professional needs
- Developing self confidence
- Building a network
- Practising self-care
- Marketing and Business development
- Setting personal goals and objectives
Our mentoring has been developed with all this in mind, giving the new doula the opportunity to expand, develop and gain confidence.
When you sign up to mentoring you will be supported to choose your mentor from our team of experienced doula mentors. Over a period of 15 months you will build a trusted relationship with your mentor with sessions scheduled every three months on either Skype, FaceTime, WhatsApp or face-to-face. At the end of 15 months you will have the opportunity to continue your mentoring as often as you feel you need the support and where you can set the agenda for each session.
Each mentoring session, which lasts between 60 and 90 minutes costs £60 (for UK-based mentors), payable to your mentor in advance of the session. There is an initial registration fee of £150 payable to Nurturing Birth.
