So you want to become a Doula?
We’ll help you jumpstart your plans to become a doula....
But first let’s answer a couple Frequently Asked Questions:
What's a doula?
There are so many ways to answer this question but first and foremost a doula is a compassion human who seeks to offer physical, informational and emotional support to people in the childbearing year.
Who can be a doula?
Anyone with a desire to support people in the perinatal period. We have supported individuals from all walks of life and all parts of the world. As a Traditional Healthcare Profession and set of life skills the doula profession is supportive to every age, gender and personal identification including intergenerational career moves, spiritual and lifestyle choice. Doulas stand at the intersection of birthing person to parent, individual’s access to health equity, family to community.
In an effort to cultivate and nurture thriving and sustainable culturally specific doula care (a doula for every person who wants one!) there are Diversity Scholarship opportunities for individuals who identify as Black Indiginous, Doulas of Color or Trans LGTBQIA+. Inquire about our scholarships.
