Jan Mallak led the first postpartum doula training for ICEA in Export, PA today. I was one of the doulas who attended. We shared ideas about how to be better postpartum doulas and had some lively role playing exercises. We even had a cute baby to help us with the 6 S’s of The Happiest Baby on the Block, by Dr. Harvey Karp. Our goal as postpartum doulas? To support new mothers and be baby whisperers. Soon, I hope to have a new certification: postpartum doula with ICEA.
