DONA International approved Postpartum Doula
Kathrin Auger offers Postpartum Doula Workshops several
times a year as one step in the process toward certification as
a Postpartum Doula by DONA International. The workshop is
experiential and interactive, offering participants a broad-
based learning experience. Participants learn in an
environment that fosters self-growth while providing both
didactic and hands-on experience.
During the workshop participants will gain in-depth
knowledge about the role of a doula during the postpartum
period as well as a personal understanding of the emotions
and spiritual nature of birth and life with a newborn.
Kathrin Auger brings to her teaching a love of pregnancy,
birth, women and babies and a belief in the innate ability of
each woman to birth and parent in her own unique way. At
the same time, she respects a new mother's level of comfort
and knowledge. It is her desire to foster this same belief and
respect in workshop participants.
If you share these beliefs and would like to work with women
and their families to help them more fully enjoy the early
weeks with their new baby, you may want to consider
becoming a postpartum doula, providing physical, emotional,
and informational support to the family just after childbirth.
