Welcome to the
International Doula Life Movement

Setting the Standard for Doula Education Worldwide

The doula movement is rapidly growing and for good reason. In times of transition or crisis, individuals and families need more than just rapid-fire facts and information that lead to feelings of overwhelm. Well trained doulas are able to bring a compassionate, empathetic presence and help guide people to making the best, more logical choice for them in the moment. 


The International Doula Life Movement offers international doulas —of all specialties—a values and mission-based education, resource center, and community committed to helping them support others.
