The heart of the adoption doula is to serve well, and the message has been clear:

“I’m hungry to learn even more.”


We’ve decided to create a wonderful opportunity for advancement of learning for the adoption doula, beginning by creating a specialized tuition to enroll in the stillbirthday Birth & Bereavement Doula® certification program.

Here’s why:

  • this SBD Adoption Doula certification is a free add-on for the SBD alumni.  At your SBD credentialing, you’ll be able to enter the SBD Adoption Doula network group and work through the syllabus.  Our Student Resources  will continue to develop for this program as well.

  • those considering adoption for their biological children have a right to grieve, and as such, we have a responsibility to respond to that grief appropriately.
  • those considering growing their family may (or may not!) have been impacted by perinatal bereavement
  • the SBD Doula® program and website addresses ART, embryo adoption, LGBTQ+ and adoption, elective abortion and grief, adoption and grief, teen pregnancy (campus doulas), and more.
  • the Church & Campus extended learning opportunity for SBD Doulas is a nice complement.
  • you will receive all of the exceptional benefits of the stillbirthday global community.
  • let us know if you’d like to help contribute to the development of this upcoming program.

Here’s the details:

    1.  Register for, and then successfully complete the SBD doula certification.
      If you are absolutely sure that the larger components of bereavement are not what your interest is and your heart is purely focused on adoption support, we will honor your interest and calling, with a special coupon code that can be applied when you do register for the SBD doula certification.  While we can’t compromise the importance of the foundational underpinning of the SBD certification, we can work with you to adjust the tuition to accomodate what will surely be an investment of your time in completing the SBD program.  Therefore, at registration for the SBD doula program, you can use coupon code:  adoption
      This will offer you a $75 savings of the SBD doula program, and cannot be combined with any other offer.
    2. Complete your profile for the Adoption Doulas website.
    3. You won’t need to purchase the Adoption Doula handbook – it’s included!
    4. Join the SBD Doula training Admissions group.  You will learn the breadth of pregnancy and infant loss support for the Adoption Doula discount.  This is a rolling enrollment, all entirely online for your convenience.
    5. At graduation as an SBD Doula®, you’ll also receive free access into the SBD Adoption Doula extended learning.
    6. This is a $267+ value!
