A suite of services specially designed to educate, celebrate and support you on your birthing journey
Our 3- day training is designed to arm you with the tools necessary to provide physical, emotional and informational support to birthing families; whether they are birthing in a hospital, birth center or home.
We will co-create a space to explore ways to reclaim and preserve traditional birthing practices within this modern birth culture.
Some topics we will explore:
Honoring the legacy of Grand midwives, Creating a sacred birthing space , Comfort measures from around the world including aromatherapy, acupressure, rebozo, herbology, homeopathy and more.
The business side of being a doula, visualizations and meditations for sacred birthing, How to facilitate a Birth Blessingway, Whole body health during pregnancy, Normal Physiological Labor, Common medical interventions and how to help when they are needed, Positive and Effective communication, Birth plan preparation, Linkage to community resources, Facilitate communication between mother and partner/family and medical personnel, Infant care education and support, motivating and supporting women in breastfeeding, Perinatal Mood Disorder screening and so much more!
This training is facilitated mostly by me, Nilajah Brown, (an international birthworker with over 20 years experience); however, I do bring in other trained experts to discuss special topics such as Post-Partum Depression and Supporting a Family During Loss.
It's time to start you career as a Certified Doula! Your community needs you.
"The training was everything I needed it to be. It was all encompassing. It was more than just a discussion of how to be a doula and the ABC's of our 'role'- it was a cultural awakening both in being a woman of color and how birth was originally conceived through the spirit of our granny midwives. On top of that you allowed us to experience other 'experts' as part of our training and graciously invited us to connect with them outside of the training. Nowadays, that kind of openness and sharing is rare." S. Beacham,CD (TheBirthWell)
"I love your light yet steady touch, and your no bs style of communication. I appreciate how you encourage us to dig deep and bring out our best. The training reminded me to go with Goddess/gut and have faith in our instinct."
