I had the honor of sitting in on a webinar this past week from the Partnership for Maternal Child Health of Northern New Jersey that my friend and colleague Jill Wodnick was presenting on. She inspired me as I am preparing to present on the Successes and Challenges for International Implementation of Doula Services for the V Conferência Internacional sobre Humanização do Parto e Nascimento conference in Brazil. I decided this information is too important not to share with you too!
I hope you enjoy our Doula Spotlight, please join me to celebrate the invaluable contributions of doulas worldwide as I share updates on the latest developments in doula care.

Addressing Challenges in Doula Care
While there are many positives happening with doulas in the US and around the world. This Doula report reflects on doula burnout, traumatic births and childcare needs and the opportunity to hear doulas as well as the importance of equity for all to become doulas as well as to have a doula from the community —https://www.dol.gov/sites/dolgov/files/WB/WB_issuebrief-doulas-v3.pdf
After reading all the ways doulas are spreading around the world, are you ready to join Our doula workshop?
I invite you to join our upcoming DONA birth doula workshops where magic happens as we dive into the intricacies of doula support and explore ways to enhance perinatal health outcomes through compassionate care.
The cost of the doula workshop is less than the reimbursement for one client in NJ. Where else can you take a class and in your first client not only make back what you spent to take the training but earn more too. I don’t know any other field that compensates you so fast and in so many ways.
