Steph Burrows

Dynamo Doula Enrolled Student

Over these past few months YOU have completely changed the course of my career and life! I went from wanting to be a part-time Doula with a “real job” to funding my dream Doula job.


For the first time in my life I’m doing what I am truly passionate about and not just what I’m good at. Being so close to your wisdom that you share through the Facebook group has been such a privilege. You are so authentic - being in the presence of such a strong and defiant woman has brought out my own inner feminist diva. I find myself thinking, talking and behaving differently - more proud yet humble to learn; stronger in my beliefs yet still open to understanding others; more whole as a women, mother, wife, friend, sister and daughter.


This course is going to completely transform me as a person, woman and Doula. The course outline is soooo freaking amazing and I can’t wait to soak it all in and learn from you. THANK YOU for all of the energy, love, wisdom, strength and passion that you have put into this! You should feel incredibly proud of the movement you have created.


I know every single woman who has joined Dynamo Doula feels personally connected to you and as an educator it really doesn’t get any better than that.


Your Dynamo Doula Movement is making waves across our community in the BEST possible way!”

Have you been thinking the only way to pursue a career that involved women/people, babies, partners and parents was through formal education in the path of an Obstetrician or Midwife?

Well darling, you are soooo wrong with that one!

Doula work is the quickest way to work in birth, intercept the system and make real change within it. This program equips you with every ounce of knowledge you will need to rock your gig as super Doula, all the while instilling you with the deepest levels of integrity and professionalism you’ll find on the market.

Alright Angela, this sounds very cool, but can you tell me what a Doula does?

Great question! 

Doula work is a craft: the explosive marriage of instinct, intuition, knowledge and calling. 

It’s the purposeful way of emotionally and physically supporting the woman and/or person through pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period; practicing within a professional scope and code of ethics, all the while becoming anything & everything the Doula’s client needs.

Doulas use intention and compassion to bridge gaps in maternal & infant healthcare, providing the ultimate level of continuity of care to each client we work with.

As a Doula you'll use a unique set of characteristics to fulfil your calling to support and serve: 
patience, presence, malleability, commitment.

  • You'll use these traits to hold hands and carry hearts, rub feet and lay cold wash cloths against the brows of a labouring woman.
  • You'll wipe tears and help with the weight of heavy burdens your clients may be holding.
  • You'll educate and inspire the parents you work with to push further than they’ve ever pushed, while reminding them to enjoy birth as a physical, emotional and spiritual experience ripe with potential for transformation.

As a Doula you'll combine a myriad of different skills with your own personal talents to create tailored offerings that suits each person you work with uniquely.

  • You'll structure a series of antenatal and postnatal meetings that involve the intricacies of helping your clients find a care model & provider that is aligned with their individual philosophies
  • You'll be assisting them in planning for their ideal birth scenario, helping them create contingency plans for when the unexpected happens
  • You'll teach them high quality childbirth education all the whilst covering ‘must know’ information on protocols and policies relevant to their chosen care model, intervention, induction, procedures and more.
  • check
    You'll create spaces where women and birthing people can let their guards down and blossom in total safety, warmth and unparalleled support.

Much of what you'll do as a Doula is profound and can be explained in two words: active listening.

Because the truth of it is this: Doulas see and hear their clients when they feel like no one else does!

Doulas are the empowered & aware people who saw the pain, saw the error, saw the lacking, saw the inequity, saw the overwhelm in childbirth and child rearing and said ...

“I’m going to do something about this!”


Welcome to the future of Doula Work ...

 born and bred in one very special place ...

Angela Gallo's Dynamo Doula Training™ Program Is Specifically Structured To Help You Become Everything You Were Destined To Be ...​​

So that every woman, mother, birthing person, parent and baby you work with has the privilege of enjoying your beautiful gifts.

Can you imagine for a second ...

A world where birth keepers, birth coaches and birth educators find success in places they were told they couldn’t.

A world where all Doulas are valued, respected and celebrated for the exceptional work they create.

A world where all Doulas are known for operating in full integrity & professionalism.

A world where all Doulas are in a position to create meaningful work that impacts their community and the world at large.

How Will Angela Gallo’s Dynamo Doula Training™ Inspire That World To Materialize?

I have carefully curated this training program around a number of my own philosophies, values and beliefs

Every ounce of content found within this curriculum is built around these beautiful seeds - the exact seeds I used to scale my own business to 6 figures and the exact seeds I have used to help other successful Doulas slay their own businesses.

  • Believe in your gifts
  • Monetise your passions
  • Diversify your offerings
  • ​​​​Work smarter not harder
  • Change the world

Furthermore, I built the program with a few very specific goals in mind ….

  • See Doulas and the services they provide, respected and celebrated by the medical, maternal care and birthing community at large;
  • See outcomes & experiences improved for women and birthing people worldwide through the delivery of exceptional services made available by savvy, skilled, and compassionate Doulas;
  • See awareness and change manifested by Doulas through critical conversation, activism, and advocacy;
  • check
    Seeing women in business supported and believed in so that they may build profitable, sustainable and purpose filled companies doing the work they love.

By marrying a unique set of cornerstones and values, my team and I are endeavouring to birth a new league of Doulas invested in our collective work, whilst being invested in themselves.

We believe that Doulas have the heart and vision to improve mainstream birth culture, they need only the guidance to help them realise this potential.

We believe in dreams and the Doulas dreaming them; we believe in nurturing Doulas until their dreams become reality.

We believe in the reverberating power of passion and in the value of persistent enthusiasm.

We believe in Doulas operating as true professionals; at all times behaving and performing the services in a professional, timely, and competent manner using reasonable care, skill and diligence with a high standard of honesty and integrity, as to responsibly represent Doula work and Doulas as a whole.

We believe in integrity - the quality of being honest and operating in strong moral principle. We believe in Doulas operating ethically, with a strong sense of self-worth; sincerely, truthfully, trustworthy and in good character always.

We believe in making a positive change in the communities in which we operate and that fundamentally, Doulas exist to do good and do no harm.

We believe in big picture thinking, short and long terms goals to achieve meaningful impact and the inspired action to match.

We honor the fundamental value and dignity of all individuals. We commit ourselves to creating and maintaining an environment that respects and supports diverse traditions, heritages, experiences, and cultures, as well as people from all walks of life and circumstance.

We believe in commitment to a greater good in the broader spectrum of childbirth and parenting; as well as using our unique skills, talents, gifts and experiences to achieve the objectives in alignment with this greater good.

We believe in collaboration, not competition, as a critical way of maintaining strong community values and a necessary abundant mindset.

We believe that learning is more important than knowing, and that continual self-improvement, humility, and compassion is vital to the foundational success of any professional Doula.

We believe in being daring enough to disrupt, because vanilla doesn’t move mountains.

Lastly, we believe in you, and the worth of your ambitions, heart, vision and desires as a professional Doula.​​​​

Katherine Eden Lech

Mother Blessings

Katherine believes that magic truly does happen every single time women gather, and if we can bring that magic to surround a woman about to enter motherhood, we are supporting the change that we want to see more of in the world. Offering blessings, ceremonies and ritual is much more about raising the oxytocin, lowering the cortisol on a physiological level. Raising the vibration on a spiritual, energetic and cellular level, and about completely nourishing and nurturing a woman’s every sense. 


The foundation of this work is based on the idea of honouring the ‘in between’ or the matrescence that humans have always done. As a remembering of our connection with the cycles and the earth. As a rewilding experience to connect us back with both our cyclic nature and with love from those around us. This video will give you an understanding of what a Blessing is, why the science can back up it’s incredible benefits for any woman, how to tailor your offerings to meet YOUR market (not just the hippie crowd), some activities you might includes, and some information about blessings and cultural appropriation and, how/why you need to avoid it.

Mother Roasting

Sacred Postpartum practices offer a level of holistic healing for a new mama’s mind, body, and soul that is unparalleled. Birth is an amazing and intense journey. Women bodies go through a lot of hard work to bring a child into the world. Through all this, they are opening to ‘release their baby’. Afterwards, this openness may remain present and leave them feeling empty. Their bodies have been a vessel for their little one for many months so they may experience a sense of emptiness once they have completed the birthing process. With these gentle yet powerful ritualistic ceremonies women in their first days of motherhood, we are pulling the mother "together" and also introducing heat back into her body on many levels. In this contribution you will learn more on ‘Mother Roasting’.

Preventing Burnout As A Birth Professional and How To Implement Effective Self-Care Practices

When doulas do not care for themselves and lead themselves into burnout, it not only leaves a huge void in the profession as a whole, because we lose amazing workers, but it drastically limits the support available to women.

This presentation will discuss what burn out actually is, what some of the most common causes are and their consequences for birth workers and the profession as a whole.

"A lot of what you're offering bypasses the other programs I've looked at. Being witness to a strong women pursuing her passions confidently is inspiring. I didn't feel inspired after talking to one course teacher who wanted to make sure I knew being a doula is more likely to be a hobby job and there's no money in it."

Breanne
