About the International Doula Life Movement

Our Values

At the International Doula Life Movement, we strive to provide the best up to date training and support for aspiring and practicing doulas. We feel that everyone should work together in the end-of-life process to offer support, education, and hands-on training to our students and families that are touched through your work as a doula. 

Changing Communities One Doula At A Time

We founded the International Doula Life Movement to provide affordable and accessible doula training to any individual ready to make a difference in their community members’ lives.

 

The International Doula Life Movement takes great pride in our signature End of Life Doula certification training program, as well as the continuing education trainings we offer across all areas of doula care.

 

Our founder, Anna Adams, has over 25 years of experience in hospice and end-of-life care. She brings her innate understanding of the medical field and business to provide comprehensive training programs for future end of life doulas, companion care doulas, and life planning doulas.

 

Our educational team is dedicated to training those interested in supporting patients and families across a variety of focus areas via a holistic approach to their line of doula work.

IDLM Doula Support Team

The work of the International Doula Life Movement would not be possible without the support of the extended doula community, who bring a diverse wealth of experience and knowledge to our community. These talented doulas offer their time and knowledge to IDLM in a variety of mission-critical roles such as filling in for live class instructors as the need arises, fielding questions from prospective doulas and providing feedback for the IDLM executive team from a variety of unique perspectives.
