Birth Arts International will challenge, encourage, equip, and inspire you with knowledge and hands-on skills to support growing families.
In my time sharing with you, we will go deeper than basic skills and include times of story sharing, questioning ourselves, and moving in a direction of growth and community building. First, recognizing that we all come from different backgrounds and experiences and respecting those differences as we share and learn together. Being a doula is an expansive role and one that can lead to burn out if we don’t care for ourselves, that care begins with honoring our own truths and beliefs and so that is where we will start. My classes are an open and honest environment surrounded with respect and sacredness for everyone in the room. My goal is that you will move forward feeling grounded and ready to serve families. Whether you are healing from your own birth story, have a triumphant birth story, or no birth story at all, I will meet you there. Together we will embrace where you are at and support you as your journey continues to unravel.
After completing the interactive training with me, you will continue the certification process online with Birth Arts International and the support of Global Director, Demetria Clark at no additional cost.
