I feel empowered as a woman after completing this course. I learned so much in 2 days, and it feels great to have the knowledge I now have regarding birth. I will highly recommend this course and HALO to friends and family. My instructor, Michelle Stroud, encouraged me to follow my heart and believe in myself as a Doula. I know my business will be a success. Thanks for helping me achieve one of my dreams!

After taking the Labour Doula training course I felt confident and reassured that being a Labour Doula was the right thing for me. The course helped me expand my knowledge about pregnancy, labour and birth in a number of ways and reaffirmed my strong feelings and aspirations about helping others experience their best birth
