BIRTH DOULA TRAINING MAY (VIRTUAL)
This course lays the foundation for anyone pursuing a path as a birth doula. A collaboration between Carriage House Birth, Woven Bodies, and Dorcas Davis Consulting, our 9-week program offers comprehensive training and fundamental information so you are adequately equipped with the expertise to support birthing families with confidence and compassion.
Every birth experience is unique so we think it’s critical that our doula training students learn from teachers with a breadth of lived experiences. Your teachers will include experienced doulas, seasoned mentors focused on the perinatal space, esteemed birth educators, and antiracist and LGBTQIA+ activists. Building a solid base of medical knowledge around birth is crucial, but so too is work that goes beyond the physical acts of laboring and delivery. In the CHB training program you will also dig deep into questions of bias, privilege, race, and inequalities, which all intersect the birthing process.
Learning, particularly this kind of learning, is not an island. So each week to support more nuanced exploration of the chosen material there will be Share Circles led by peers or mentors that foster a more collective approach to learning. Assignments and coursework will test both your acquired knowledge and offer opportunities for thoughtful reflection in various formats.
Each week we will deep dive into a new subject essential for your foundational training. Here’s a sample of what will be covered over the course of 9 weeks.
+History of American Obstetrics and Midwifery Care
+Anatomy and Physiology of Birth
+High Risk Pregnancies and Interventions
+Antiracism Workshop with Dorcas Davis Consulting
+LGBTQIA+ Workshop with Woven Bodies
+Your Doula Bag
+Building Your Doula Business
