Younique Postnatal is a Doula UK accredited course provider set up by experienced postnatal doulas Sally-Anne Holman, Victoria Greenly and Naomi Kemeny. We are passionate about supporting families after a birth - and want to share our experiences with other women who would like to explore what it means to be a postnatal doula.
The postnatal doula movement is growing in the UK and we hope you will become part of it! We believe the support we give can have a positive and profound effect on families for years after their baby is born.
Supporting families after a baby’s birth can be a subtle and complex path. With cuts in midwifery services and a society where families are not always close, the need for postnatal doulas is greater than ever. As a postnatal doula, you will be able to give new parents the emotional, practical and informational support so many of them need. Making the special time after a baby is born as positive as possible is something a postnatal doula can most definitely help with!
Our aim is to provide excellent courses and workshops in initiating and developing postnatal doula skills. We offer a grounding in the preparation and reflection required to be a postnatal doula. On completion of our training course, you will have a wide repetoire of skills to confidently pursue a career as a postnatal doula and begin the process of setting up your practice. A career as a postnatal doula is rewarding and flexible - you can make it fit your lifestyle in whichever way you want!
We offer two courses and two workshops year round in venues across the UK:
Initial Doula Preparation Course - 3 days
Development Course - 2 days
Twins and More Workshop - 1 day
Understanding Newborns - 1 day
Our courses are based on lively and interactive learning, with visual aids, group work, hands on experience and practice exercises. The topics we cover highlight evidence based information, current guidelines and new areas of research in postnatal care. We also offer support after your course is over, an extensive manual and access to a secret Facebook group of postnatal doulas.
