mentorship program

advancing your practice

Next level coaching, education and community for doulas who have been in business for at least one year and are looking to streamline and expand their birth work business.

"Joining this program was the best decision I've ever made for myself and my doula practice. Not only having a designated mentor who affirmed me each step of the way but also connecting to an entire community of birth workers who were on the same journey ... Birthwork is impossible without community and just as we encourage our clients to cultivate their village to support them during their birth and postpartum experiences, we need to do that for ourselves too!”
