A comprehensive full spectrum doula training for non-trained, new and experienced doulas. This course is intended to leave the participant with enough information to support someone professionally as a birth, loss and postpartum doula.

This course is intended to leave the participant with enough information to support someone professionally as a birth, loss, abortion and postpartum doula. Each participant will receive a Doula manual and access to a virtual binder (post training). For the first two weeks we will build a solid foundation and get on the same page regardless of experience level. The following three weeks we will be applying the knowledge gained and build upon it. My objective is for each person to walk away feeling empowered and ready to serve as a doula! This course is a skills based training that covers community standards and evidence based practices. In addition, we will use a POC centered social justice lease, cover traditional modalities, and learn basic bussiness skills. Within this course you will have 35+ hours of online course work divided into 7 weeks total. By the end of the training you will walk away with an extensive amount of knowledge, a new community, and a certificate of completion.

I believe that each person who attends this training is already a doula. As a facilitator my goal is to provide the tools to equip each participant to practice as a professional doula. This course is truly one that transforms each participant from a lay person to a practitioner. Holding space for people as a doula is very ancient and I hope to activate the dormant memory of this sacred work in each participants DNA.

Sumi’s training is so important especially for people of color who need this information to create and sustain our own communities starting with birth. Our ancestors have passed down the knowledge of the cycle of birth since forever, and it is our duty to continue passing down this service for and by our communities to ensure our healthy and peaceful existence.
