Doulavation has been so helpful. I’ve only just started it and I have been given such a helpful guide and directions to run with already. Maddie is a lovely human. So humble and so knowledgeable, experienced, empowering and generous. Doulavation helps build the belief and trust that you can walk along your own self honouring doula journey with grace and honour. I highly recommend Doulvation not just to doulas but all birth workers.
Thank you Maddie I feel so blessed our paths have crossed.
This course isn’t about making you a better doula – you already know and are constantly learning how to be the best doula you can be. It isn’t even about making more money – although that might be necessary and desirable. It’s about exploring ways of making your doulaing business sustainable.
‘the ability to be maintained at a certain rate or level’ and the ‘avoidance of the depletion of natural resources in order to maintain an ecological balance.’
It’s about finding your level – the amount of energy you need coming into your life to fuel the energy going out. That energy may take the form of money or it may not – you are the only person who can define your personal energy needs.
Sustainability is about balance and about time – creating a lifestyle that you can continue for as long as you wish.
It also means recognising that you need to choose whether to be a finite resource to your community or work towards being able to replenish your energy so you don’t get ‘all used up’. I have seen too many doulas burn out to want that for you. So we will be talk about how to prepare and support yourself for the long haul.
So Doulavation is about elevating you to higher ground so you can survey your landscape, take stock of your life and business, take a moment to work out what you really want, and how you want to go about getting it. Doulavation isn’t about manifesting money by asking the universe – there is some wisdom in those who sell those notions, but without the practical application of the tools you have at your disposal, you can do all the asking the universe you like and it won’t get you anywhere.
On a practical level, Doulavation is comprised of Sections and each section contains a number of topics. There is text to read, videos to watch and tasks to complete. There are also resources to download – our relaxation and hypnosis mp3s are designed and produced just for you. And we also have a supportive facebook community exclusively for Doulavators!
So hop on board and let’s work together to doulavate your business!
