Thank you for your interest in the Birthing People’s Foundation Birthworker Training!
Training will be held in Los Angeles at our office and teaching space, Kindred Space LA on July 27,28 & 29, 2018. We will have three very full and packed days of learning and sharing.
You all are the change makers for our world and for the future generations!
We believe that just your desire to support birthing families is already a huge contribution to the healing of the planet.
The time is now to put your desire into motion. My job and the job of our co-facilitators is to activate that which is already within you and ready to serve.
That being said no one training, workshop, certification, license or otherwise can do it all for you on this journey. Your learning with be lifelong, with experiences gleaned from your own family life, the experiences of other families, as well as the stories you will hear and share with other birth workers and others on this path.
Our training speaks to the needs of not only families of color, but birthworkers of color, This training is a call-of-action addressing what we know to be true (and documented in study after study), that to decrease rates of maternal and infant morbidity and mortality in black,brown,indigenous and marginalized communities,we must have birthworkers from these very same communities...Birthworkers of color fill an invaluable role,they save lives and our society needs more of them.
Our Training will cover all aspects of the birth & postpartum birthworker (doula) experience. Once training is complete you should have the basics you need to start or enhance your journey as a birthworker. However in order to become "certified" additional requirements need to be met.
