"Yoga Mamas had such a nice room to have the Doula training in. Their staff were helpful when I needed to nurse my son there during breaks. Snacks, coffee and lemon water were a nice touch everyday." ~ Emily, Birth Doula
"I recently completed the DONA birth doula training at Yoga Mamas. I was thoroughly impressed with the quality of education I received from the training. The course is condensed with valuable information for anyone who is interested in the miracle of childbirth. I feel confident and inspired to continue my path of supporting women through their birth journeys!"
