Doula Training

Do you have a strong desire to help women and babies? Do you ever remember NOT having a fascination with pregnancy and birth? Does the idea of assisting a new family with their labor process excite you? Well, follow your heart and check out how to become a Certified Birth Doula through DONA International! It is the oldest, largest, and most recognized certifying organization in the world. Your journey starts with a Birth Doula Workshop!

I was blessed to be instructed by Penny Simkin and Kathy McGrath in Cancun. I was nervous at my first training, of course, but the desire to instill the blessing of becoming a doula kept driving me! Now I offer trainings throughout the San Diego county region and beyond; including San Diego, Oceanside, Temecula/Murrieta, and Mission Viejo.

I have trained dozens of women who have become certified. Don’t be afraid of an overload of doulas…there can NEVER be too many. Truth is doulas are chosen due to the connection the couple has with her. And everyone’s criteria varies for who their “perfect doula” should be! Besides, our profession is more of a sisterhood supporting each other; not a competition between each other. Mom’s need to feel “connected” with the one they choose, as it’s a very personal relationship, after all! Please feel free to check it out, especially if you have felt that tug toward birth work. You will NOT be disappointed!

"Diana is an exceptional teacher and doula. She is passionate, knowledgeable and experienced. Diana creates a learning environment with love and support. She encourages her students and continues to cheer them on even after program completion. I am so thankful to have had Diana as an instructor. She made me into the doula I am today. I would recommend her whole-heartedly to any aspiring doulas or expectant moms."
