Dear Birth Workers,

Supporting a family during the childbearing year is intense and rewarding. Our workshops will help you thrive. We strive to create a better experience for parents and professionals by ending birth worker burn out!

You are invited you to join our mission to make the next evolution of birth better than in any other time in history. 

Update: July, 2020. Birth worker meet-ups and continuing education are on hold for the remainder of 2020. We are doing our best to manage our doula clients and parenting responsibilities. There will be a birth doula training in the fall and we hope to resume these sessions in spring 2021.
