At the end of this weekend training, your view of birth, women, birth practices, and where the power resides will likely be transformed forever.
At current rates, there are over 4,000 babies born in Regina annually and closer to 5,000 in Saskatoon. Only about 200 of those in each centre will be attended by a doula; and in fact, many rural areas have no doulas at all. So, thereโ€™s certainly room for more doulas!!
