DONA – APPROVED BIRTH DOULA WORKSHOP
This Doula Training Workshop is designed to educate and provide professional expertise to anyone interested in learning how to serve the birth community as a Professional Doula. Penny and Geneva’s training motto is, “every person who hears the call to be a Doula, deserves the opportunity to become one.”
This Doula training will introduce and instill the skills required to comfort and support families during pregnancy, labor, birth and during the first few hours following birth. Participants will become self-assured, nonmedical, labor/support providers. Successful attendees will become qualified in assisting birth-givers and their birth partners and helping them navigate the exciting birth experience.
The Doula Training Weekend will be filled with presentations, videos, roundtable discussions and practical exercises to train, encourage and challenge session participants. The result will be an exciting, rewarding and educational experience in learning the power of the human connection and the wonder of the birth experience.

Elephant Circle is a birth justice organization. We strive to remove obstacles to justice during childbirth and the two years surrounding it. Inspired by elephants who give birth within a circle of support, we envision a world where all people are fully supported and thriving during pregnancy, birth and as they become parents.
Penny and Geneva donate to the Elephant Circle and several other local birth organizations each time we hold a workshop.
