What participants are saying...
“You will learn everything in an efficient, organized, and energizing way. It was incredible. You will leave feeling ready and eager to practice the skills you learned. And you will automatically have a new community of supportive women in your life. This is more than a training, it brings you together will like-minded souls. You will find your tribe!” -Katie, Workshop Participant
“The birth doula training completely shifted my beliefs about birth, and I would highly recommend anyone interested in feeling more empowered about women’s health and birth to take this course even if they are not planning on a career as a doula. I feel like the knowledge I gained was invaluable and that at the very least, I will be able to support friends, family, and myself to have a much more positive birth experience.” -Katerina, Workshop Participant
“This is not just a Birth Doula Training workshop – this is a history, psychology, sociology, physiology, semantics, anatomy and women’s empowerment class taught by a woman who is generous with vast breadth of knowledge and experience, as well as generous with her enthusiasm and her heart.” – Kim, Workshop Participant
