POSTPARTUM DOULA TRAINING SEPTEMBER (VIRTUAL)
This course lays the foundation for anyone pursuing a path as a postpartum doula. A collaboration between Carriage House Birth, Woven Bodies, Samantha Huggins 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 in the perinatal health space.
Every person’s postpartum 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. You will be led by instructors Dorcas Davis, Samantha Huggins, and Morgane Richardson. In the CHB training program you will also dig deep into questions of bias, privilege, race, and inequalities, which all intersect the postpartum process.
This foundational training will be held over the course of 9 weeks, online via weekly 3-hour live Zoom sessions. Each session will be recorded; if you are unable to attend a live session, you will have access to the recordings for the duration of the course.
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.

+Introduction to Reproductive Justice
