As an active doula attending births at local DC, Maryland, and Virginia hospitals, birth centers, and homes, I can give you up to date information on your medical providers and your birth facilities common practices.
I have 5 years of experience as a full time birth and postpartum doula, and feel that it is important that families have accessible guidance on their birth experience whether or not they have hired a birth doula or not.
I am able to offer income and wealth based sliding scale rate.
I Believe in Equity
20% of revenue from classes goes directly into the hands of BIPOC, Queer, and disabled community birth workers.
Why? Because birth workers representing marginalized communities know how to best take care of members of their community, and themselves.
These funds go to local doulas caring for local birthing people, midwifery funds, mutual aid requests, and projects geared towards birthing people and their families.
