Collective Hearts Birth Services believes that every family deserves non judgmental and culturally competent care during the transition to parenthood. We are connected with many incredible birth professionals across the Bay and are happy to refer families to other doulas if we are not the best fit for you.
As part of our commitment to this model of care, we offer formal and informal mentorship and professional support to doulas from diverse backgrounds. All of our birth clients will be asked if they agree to have one of our mentees shadow us during a prenatal visit or at birth. Lots of families agree and find it super rewarding to have an additional support person around.
Becoming a doula is a complex process, logistically and emotionally and without this hands on mentorship, many trained doulas find it impossible to integrate their training into their life. If you are interested in becoming a doula, or are already practicing but need more support, please fill out the form below.
