A Woman Who Serves Doula Training

Returning to our roots of women serving women in pregnancy and childbirth.

About Us

We are a virtual doula certification program that can be conveniently accomplished from the comfort of your home, wherever you are! We offer the highest standard of training and education, with personal support throughout the process, via a combination of  live video classes and written materials! We honor the role of women in pregnancy and childbirth, as it has been since ancient times,  honoring the strength, dignity, and natural, God-given biological function of women as mothers, as well as the historical meaning of the word doula, which is a Greek word that means "a woman who serves." We train women to support other women with integrity, dignity, confidence, and grace, and we support cultural diversity in this role.

Meet the Program Director

Amaris Garcia

Amaris started her work as a childbirth educator in 2014 in Iowa and Nebraska. She also became certified as a lactation counselor, birth doula, bereavement doula, and trained in specialties such as postpartum and herbalism for women's health. She worked in a busy hospital in Labor & Delivery for 4.5 years, teaching parent classes and assisting families with lactation support on the postpartum wing. While there, she developed a successful hospital volunteer doula program that she managed, taught the training workshops for, and certified many doulas, providing support and mentorship along the way. AWWS virtual doula training was born out of this experience and a passion for teaching others.

Amaris has supported families in both hospital and home births and has worked with a local holistic, pro-life women's center, teaching childbirth and lactation classes, as well as several years of past experience as a La Leche League leader. She is also fluent in Spanish as a second language.

Her passion in seeing God's beauty in the natural design of our bodies and drawing from his strength and grace, influences her heart behind the program. She loves the meaning of the word, doula, and her desire is to always be a doula at heart in all areas of life--a woman who serves others, as Christ served and gave his life.

 

She enjoys the outdoors, studying herbalism and natural health, doing professional photography for families as her other job, and mothering and teaching her children.
