The need for well-trained Postpartum Doulas continues to rise.
Every time a new baby comes into a family, whether through direct birth, surrogacy, or adoption, that family can benefit from the assistance of a knowledgeable, caring professional. A Postpartum Doula supports the growing family with education and information, helps around the house, and has ample experience with babies. Their non-judgmental advocacy helps new parents feel secure and confident as they find their own way in parenting.
YOU can support families in finding the joy of a new baby and to discover tools that make life easier during this time. YOU have the potential to touch so many lives!

ABG Postpartum Doula training in a nutshell…


ABG’s thorough postpartum doula training focuses on three main areas:

Why and how professional postpartum doula support is significant.

Practical hands-on support techniques for babies and new parents.

How to create a thriving, professional doula business.


Postpartum Doulas typically earn between $25 and $75 per hour, depending upon the area in which you live. This means that postpartum doula care is highly valued, and has the potential for you to earn a viable income doing what you love.

Who Can Become a Postpartum Doula?

Postpartum doulas, often also referred to as postnatal doulas, are used in many parts of the world. They provide emotional, practical, and non-medical support at home for new and growing families.


Postpartum Doulas come from a variety of backgrounds. Sometimes, my postpartum doula students come from a healthcare background. Several of my students have been nurses, and some have worked in childcare, or as nannies. Many ABG Postpartum Doula Training students have chosen this path because they were tired of work that felt unfulfilling.
Some are moms with their own parenting experience. Some don’t have children of their own but enjoy nurturing babies and growing families.
Allison Coleman runs a successful postpartum doula agency in Austin, Texas, USA. Her select team of doulas has served new families and offered award-winning classes in Austin for over 10 years.
Allison has personally trained doulas since 2015 using her exclusive ABG Postpartum Doula Training method. Many of these students have previously trained elsewhere, and found ABG Doula Training to fill a significant role in their postpartum professional journey. Allison’s Postpartum Doula certification program is one of the few doula training programs with an exclusive focus on postpartum care. In February of 2020, the ABG Postpartum Doula Certification program became fully accessible online.

Allison believes that families have an easier and happier start when they have support as their family grows. She has been able to offer this support in a variety of ways over the last 25 years.
Allsion now works as both a postpartum doula and doula trainer
and is particularly skilled at offering non-judgmental support, practical education- through clear teaching, and a unique ability to aid others in finding and respecting their own boundaries with confidence.


Hear from Some of Our Former Students:

“I thoroughly enjoyed Allison’s Postpartum Doula certification. She is incredibly knowledgeable about all of the support new families need. She enabled me to walk into the role of a Doula feeling confident and supported. Thank you.”

After having a busy birth doula business for 10 years, I decided to shift my focus to postpartum work. Despite having trained with DONA for my birth doula certification, I knew I wanted a different experience…

The training provided an excellent foundation and the mentoring provided me the experiential learning that suits me best. I can’t think of a better way to train and certify.”

Amanda Wyszkowski

“I highly recommend the ABG Postpartum Doula training program. Training with ABG provided me with the confidence I needed to jump in and begin supporting families.

I have been working as a Postpartum Doula for almost 3 years now and I give credit to the ABG Postpartum Doula training program for giving me the start I needed.”

Kristen Lucas

“There is so much that goes into building your Postpartum Doula career…
You must have deep knowledge of various topics of birth and postpartum in order to understand what a family needs. 

I found all those things and much more by training at ABG.

I have felt so supported throughout this process!”

Membership in the ABG Doula Network Private Group, where you will find support and mentoring from our staff and many experienced postpartum doulas.

Email and text access to a trainer for answers to your questions and continued mentoring.

Since we believe that professional development is part of your journey as a professional doula, ABG does not require recertification or on-going yearly fees.

While our training provides a solid foundation that will support you in becoming a great postpartum doula, I do expect students to continue seeking out additional professional education. We often share opportunities for workshops, classes, and conferences in our facebook group.

ABG Postpartum Doula Training is a perfect excellent opportunity for a self-motivated person who wants to create their own career, on their own terms.
