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 4 day intensive 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, Lindsey Bliss, 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.

"The intention that's woven throughout each session is truly something I don't think that I would have found in any other virtual doula training. This thought and intention and the budding community among my cohort makes me so grateful to have taken this training with Carriage House." - Meghan Jean-Felix

"I cannot recommend this course enough if you are thinking of becoming a postpartum doula. I came in wanting to do this because of my own crappy postpartum experience and ended up gaining so much more insight on the work that I would be doing. If I could do this course all over again, I would." - Devon Fleury
