About the event

Hello World Changers!

Thank you so much for answering the call to Birth Work and choosing me to as your Birth Doula Trainer. Please take a moment to watch this short intro video, and then take some time to introduce yourselves in the discussion section for this lesson.

Also, as we prepare for an amazing training, please make note of a few things:

  • Training is a safe space, and we will treat each other's thought ideas and stories with love and respect.
  • Brief moments with your cameras off are understandable, but the expectation is that your camera is on 90% of the training time.
  • Please raise your physical or virtual hand to share thoughts and stories, but PLEASE share!
  • Get to know the other people you are training with; we get incredible people in our trainings. Don't miss out on a friend, resource, or possible back-up Doula.
  • Ask questions!
