What Our Readers Are Saying

  • Finally! A book about becoming a doula that’s up to date and relevant for aspiring doulas in Australia. Doula work is an incredibly rewarding calling, but it’s also very demanding - on both the doula and her family. The burn out rate is high, and many doulas struggle to get started. Most training programs aren't preparing doulas for the realities of juggling life on call, running a business, setting boundaries, and attracting clients. I get emails from student doulas all the time, seeking advice as they try to get started! Kelly’s book covers everything I’d love for new doulas to know. There’s no fluff, no fairy dust…just 100% straight talk on what it really takes to do this amazing, life-changing work.

    It’s an exciting time to become a doula in Australia - more and more women are learning about how we make a difference to birth, and are looking for our services. “So You Want To Doula?” is the perfect starting point for your journey into birth work.

  • Kelly's e-book is a must read for all doula students and those considering entering into the doula profession. The book provides great insight into the 'real world' of a doula and includes important questioning to consider prior to engaging in the profession. I hope that this e-book will also assist students in their journey as a doula, so that they can understand and come back to the very basic principles of doula work, what is important and how to prepare to enter into the practice. As a trainer I know that doula training can be undertaken for deep personal development as well as as a career path. This book will go a long way in helping potential students be clear about what their motivations are, what is valuable to them and what particular training will help meet their individual needs.

  • It's very exciting to finally have access to such a comprehensive e-book for women who want to be doulas!

    We have seen a huge rise in the number of doulas and training courses over the last 10 years - so much so, it can be difficult to know just where to start if you were thinking of embarking on this exciting career path.

    Kelly's ebook is a much needed resource. I wish I had read something similar 15 years ago when I did my first doula training course in London. I totally wasted my money and came away confused and far from confident. No such guidebook had warned me about less than professional training courses.

    Not only does Kelly give you a great insight into the realities of being a doula, but she has done all the research for you on all of the trainings available in Australia. This enables you to sit down and really work out which is the best way forward for you and your very personal journey.
