.Catholic Postpartum Program Welcome to the newest version of Catholic Postpartum ~ The only difference between self-pace and fast-track is time to finish! Fast-Track Info is here at this page! Please see certification requirements on Fast-track page these remain same for both programs.
Mission Statement: Our mission is to train postpartum doulas and train postpartum leaders in the Christian spirit. We serve all Faiths. We are 100% pro-life and do not support the abortion agenda. We will only briefly teach you about Natural Family planning methods. Our Catholic Postpartum program is based on the 7 Joys of Mary. This goes from Annunciation to the Assumption of Mary into Heaven.
What does a Postpartum Doula Do?
A Postpartum doula does a lot of things! We think the best way to answer this question is to give you a link to a YouTube Video about postpartum doula work. See Link Here.
SMART Mother Model
We now Teach SMART mother model of care in our class - S for sleep for instance!
How long does it take to finish - self-Pace vs. Fast-Track
Self-pace we give you one to two years to finish - but our course is laid out like fast-track - you can finish as fast as 15 weeks if so desired. We also going to be adding in a new accountability feature for classes - see links above (coming soon).
