COVID-19: Best Practices Online Course
For Doulas, Lactation Consultants and Perinatal Educators
COVID-19 will be impacting us for the foreseeable future.
If you work with expectant families, you know how important it is to manage fears and to support trust and confidence. Families will rely on us to be prepared, to be knowledgable and to be reassuring. How can you learn what you need to know so that you can be effective?
We’ve updated our course in July, 2020, to support your practice and your safety with Best Practice Guidelines. Be prepared to care for others safely.

First Year Specialist / Postpartum Doula
If you’re exploring starting a doula program, or establishing more consistent training standards, the training and ongoing mentorship available through WisdomWay Institute is unmatched. While many groups emphasize the business of caring for families, we focus on the skills involved with caring for families, including not only solid training in lactation support, postpartum health, newborn and infant development and wellbeing, and emotional health/mood disorders, but a training that is designed to prevent burnout, cultivate deep listening and establish a Relationship-Centered model of care.
Our programs are designed to earn the trust of families, referral partners, and community stakeholders who are looking for providers who have skills, knowledge, and a framework for delivering care that is safe, compassionate, equitable, and carefully organized around a scope of practice framework.
