Faculty: Tiffany Decker: Tiffany began her career in 2012, training as both a birth and postpartum doula in the same summer. She attended an intensive 6 month internship for birth doulas, and quickly started working full time as a doula. Within a few years she launched her own full service agent, Birthing Stone Doula, that has steadily grown, despite high competition and being located in “the burbs.” Her passion for training doulas in the nuances of our work began in 2014 when she started training postpartum doulas, and kept growing as she developed a business and advanced training mentorship for her locally based doula community. You can find more about Tiffany at Portland Doula Training.
