The Doulaescence Mentoring Programme

For those who have completed the Initial Preparation course, we offer new doulas support and encouragement, and a safe place to learn so they can make the most of the start of their doula journeys. 

 

Our mentors will guide new doulas through the ‘what went well’ moments, the ‘even better if’ moments, and help them make informed choices, so going forward to the next client they feel even more set up for success. Our mentors are an invaluable resource in guiding others to consider the options, get new information and identify the support they need.

OUR MENTORS ARE:

The YP Mentoring Programme:

Is a safe place to learn and grow your Doula practice. Your mentor is on your side, offering a chance to discuss experiences and take learning from them.

 

Offer mentees a place to explore boundaries safely, and to discuss mistakes from the lens of ‘what have I learned from this’, while at the same time helping you balance ‘self-talk’ with recognising your successes.

 

Offer opportunities to identify areas you may want to explore for further learning.

 

Is encouraging and supportive of all mentees, helping them make informed choices, from how to handle things ‘next time’ to marketing or business decisions.

“I’ve absolutely loved this course. There is so much content packed into it and I’ve found the self-study in-between sessions and afterwards has worked well for me. I thought the breakout room sessions and the role-plays (although daunting) were really beneficial. My 1:1s with you have been a real highlight as well and I’d encourage everyone to take advantage of you being so generous with your time. The manual is amazing! Victoria, you’ve been so encouraging and supportive from the day I first made contact with Younique Postnatal and given me the confidence to know that I can make this happen and that I have something to offer new families. It’s wonderful to have felt so held on my ‘journey’ and still feel that way now even after the online sessions have finished. To know that all the ongoing support opportunities are there and available is just fantastic.”
