This class is pre-recorded and self-paced.

A class covering the jargon used by medical professionals in the birth space.

Our Case Studies series takes a deep dive into a single subject (from learning the ins and outs of the labor and delivery room to honing your client pitch skills) to dramatically broaden a doula’s understanding and provide them with more resources to pull from. 

Speak the language of medical professionals in the birth space. This workshop is designed to help doulas develop a fluency in common medical acronyms and jargon.

*For CHB Birth Doula students, each Case Studies Class counts as one of your 5 Case Studies towards your certification. Please check the Thank You page at the end of your class for instructions on how to submit it for credit.

Samantha Huggins

Samantha Huggins thinks a lot about interactions and relationships.  With each other, with our planet, with our bodies.  From micro to macro, one end to the other and everything in between.  She knows that all things are here already and are possible when we fortify ourselves with knowledge and strong relationships.  Samantha has been working in perinatal health for over a decade as a birthworker (doula), educator, curriculum builder, facilitator and a Co-Founder of Carriage House Birth.  Samantha's mission in birthwork today is to share her collected wisdom with eager new birthworkers, individuals, growing families and communities.
