DONA-Approved Birth Doula Workshop

A special community-based training, designed for doulas of color who want to help address infant mortality in SW Michigan

April 20 - 23, 2018
in Kalamazoo, Michigan

Rootead • 1501 Fulford Street • Kalamazoo, MI 49001 8:30 a.m. - 6 p.m. • Friday - Monday

This workshop includes Intro to Birth for Doulas and breastfeeding for Doulas, which meet additional cerNficaNon requirements with DONA international. The workshop is taught by our local DONA approved birth doula trainer, Jessica English. She has worked as a doula for more than a decade in our local hospitals. On Saturday, we’ll also welcome DONA trainer Pamela King, a doula who has been involved with community-based programs in Chicago for more than 20 years. Plus, we’ll benefit from the wisdom of Rootead’s own Kama Mitchell, who has been building her doula practice here as well!

Join us for this incredible, inspiring weekend. We have a few suggested books for reading ahead of time, but otherwise just bring your hands and your heart — a doula’s best tools!

A birth doula is a non-medical support person who helps guide women through the birth process with physical support, emotional comfort and information.
