We are partnering with ATNSC: Center for Healing & Creative Leadership to offer our first ever doula training for people of color (including queer, trans and two:spirit people) in Cleveland, Ohio. We believe creating an intentional learning space for birthworkers interested in shaping a culturally relevant practice to attend to the specific needs of their community is necessary and useful. We believe being with other burgeoning birthworkers of color will deepen learning, increase support for birthworkers of color and build a stronger foundation for a sustainable practice–how we enter our work matters.
The DTI POC Doula Training will train and certify participants in both birth and postpartum doula care. The training will start with online components of basic lactation education and anatomy and physiology of birth. Next, the 4 day in person training will cover DTI’s full curriculum. This training will be led by Malika Hook Muhammad, DTI Educator and Administrative Director and M. Carmen Lane, MSOD Founder & Director, ATNSC. Please refer to this page for certification requirements and other details.
