Let us doula you to become a doula!

For more than 30 years, HealthConnect One has supported parents and families during pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding and early parenting, primarily in communities of color and low-income communities. We have created programs and delivered trainings with and for community clinics, Federally Qualified Health Centers, tribal organizations, and numerous other community groups all across the country.

Based on that collaborative experience with community health workers, neighborhood clinics and maternal and child health advocates throughout the United States, HealthConnect One offers birth doula trainings for individuals and in partnership with organizations and agencies as a first step towards DONA certification.

HealthConnect One’s training prepares participants to become birth doulas, using an equity lens and incorporating a trauma-informed perspective. Workshops cover:

  • Labor and Birth Support
  • Breastfeeding Support
  • Childbirth Education
  • Introduction to Equity Framework
  • Orientation to Trauma-Informed Care

This training meets all DONA requirements for a foundational training, and our trainers will provide ongoing mentorship as you manage the next steps on your doula pathway.
