Breastfeeding Class for Doulas

Advance your doula education with our four-hour class with Yana on how to best support breastfeeding families as a doula. By the end of this class, students will be able to provide newborn parents evidence-based breastfeeding support and teach new breastfeeding techniques to parents.


This 4 hour class fulfills one component of your certification process with your certifying organization, such as DONA International. If you have not attended a breastfeeding class that is geared toward doulas, this will be an excellent refresher.  A certificate of attendance will be provided. In addition, please bring any required certification paperwork to be filled out at the end of class.

Topics covered:

  • Understanding cultural differences and breastfeeding expectations
  • How doulas can prepare parents for breastfeeding before baby arrives
  • Breastfeeding basics
  • The BBB of breastfeeding
  • Supporting the breastfeeding dyad after a C-birth
  • Breastsleeping support and the overnight doula
  • Breastfeeding complications and the role of the doula
