Birthworker Business Hub

Are you a birthworker?

We believe that the work of a birthworker should be sustainable, equitable, and wrapped in community.

We believe that developing programs like our Birthworker Business Hub will also work to bring more birthworkers and doulas to our local communities because wellness for infants and caregivers IS a right not a privilege. 

Our next live, full-spectrum community doula cohort is coming up so don’t delay – we’d love to speak with you!

What is the Hub?

My project copy-3

One of our solutions to perinatal disparities...

are birth doulas who have proven to lead to many positive outcomes and experiences for birthing people including: fewer cesareans, shorter labor, increased lactation, and supporting birth people with advocacy and emotional/physical support.

Naming one of the root causes being...

that there are huge barriers pertaining to certification and recognition for birth workers and doulas which affects inclusiveness and sustainability. This also affects aspiring birthworkers and perinatal health professionals.
