Do you have a passion for birth? A strong desire to support and empower birthing families? Do you wonder where to begin on this journey? You’ve come to the right place!
Being a professional Certified Doula is a profoundly rewarding career that requires a unique blend of research-based knowledge and practical skills. What better way to enter this new career than with an interactive hands-on training to ensure that you have the skills you need to be an amazing doula?
Hi, my name is Ann Pollack, owner of Denver Doula Training. As a DONA-approved birth doula trainer I have trained over 1000 new doulas since 2012.
Looking for a birth doula? Yes, I still attend births! As a DONA certified birth doula since 2001 I have supported 300+ families. My goal? I want to make sure that every woman feels heard and valued during the birth of her child. My role as a doula is to ensure you have a positive memory of your birth experience.

"I just adore and admire the community of doulas you create - time and time again you bring together people that have no common base initially (outside of loving birth) and they leave a team. You are so approachable, and make all of this content so accessible... and beyond that, you believe in each one of us, and we can tell! Thank you for the important work you're doing! Denver's birth world is so lucky to have you ❤"
"When I signed up for Ann's doula training, I had no idea how wonderful she and the community she has created would be. The way she taught both the childbirth education and doula classes were extremely organized, full of information, and gave space for students to ask questions and add their input. Not only did I learn a lot from the information presented but from the way Ann carried herself and the caring manner she interacted with everyone. Even after the course, through the entire certification and beyond, Ann has made herself, as well as her community of doula graduates, available to answer questions and offer support. I highly recommend her trainings."
"Ann has been my most valuable resource since becoming a doula. Her doula training truly gave me the strong foundation I needed to be confident in the service that I now provide to my moms. Her professionalism, compassion, knowledge and patience has mentored the way I conduct my own business, both personally and professionally."
"I feel empowered, confident and supported in starting my career as a doula. You did an excellent job this weekend in educating us while making it fun and engaging and special."
"The information, knowledge and training that Ann offered in our Doula workshop was so beneficial to me and my journey in life. I have always been a person that wanted to help people and this new role is perfect for me. So thank you so much for taking the time and effort to help me along."
"Ann is simply wonderful and amazing, not to mention full of knowledge, and has a serious knack for teaching doulas. I truly believe I wouldn't be a successful doula today without the training I received during her workshop as well as her continued guidance. Her support doesn't stop once the training is complete; she makes sure to connect all of her past and current students which has fostered a wonderful community of doulas that all support one another. It is evident she wants each of her students to succeed and I am always grateful for her wisdom and knowledge."
"Your creative activities, excellent communication, patience and skill at “reading the room” in our doula training made learning with you an absolute delight. Your kindness, generosity with your time and obvious passion and joy with your work are both personally and professionally inspiring. I am so grateful we connected and I made the choice to take your doula training and that I’m really starting to trust my instincts."
"Ann's classes exceeded my expectations in every way. She is incredibly knowledgeable and organized, presenting up-to-date evidence based education. Not only was the content excellent, but the course was a blast! She has developed many unique ways of teaching to keep everyone fully engaged. Her passion and energy for doula work and teaching shine in her classes, and she has also made herself available for further guidance when needed. I am so grateful to have begun my journey to becoming a doula with Ann. After her Birth Doula course, I felt confident, empowered and energized to help women and their families. Ann is a doula to doulas!"
