Due to the current events of COVID-19 and the National precautionary recommendations we feel that is is integral for the safety of our staff, partners, trainees, and trainers to pivot our efforts to make Doula training programs accessible for all.
We know that Doula services contribute to the woman’s preparation for and support during childbirth. We also know that some hospitals are opposed to the support that can be obtained by hiring a Doula.
Moreover we are not going to let the current events stop us from supporting our birthing community.
Prior to the current health crisis, we were planning to host a Community Based DONA International Birth Doula Training (April 17th-19th, 2020) at our newly renovated training and services center in Midwst City, Oklahoma.
We have been working hard to manage our sustainable space where trainings, classes, workshops, and community events are centered to ensure better outcomes for childbearing families.
So that we can provide the skills needed and protect those we seek to serve, we are intentional at the Beehive. We have made some very intense decisions over the past few weeks to ensure that participants have access to a quality educational experience.
In order to practice “spacious solidarity” we are pivoting from the original plan to host a LIVE in person training to now offering the same 3-Day training opportunity online via ZOOM app for those local to Oklahoma. If are already registered be looking for your email packet. If you are looking forward to registering for our Spring Session time is of the essence.
The program for the online platform will consist of:
3-days of virtual training, with BONUS component that will teach you the skills needed to Doula in the age of COVID-19 or in a virtual space, as well as an in person “one-day” interactive (hands on training session) also facilitated by DONA International trainer Nikia Lawson.
The cost of this virtual DONA International Birth Doula training with BONUS session is $500 when you enroll TODAY.
THIS TRAINING IS FOR OKLAHOMA RESIDENTS ONLY. The deadline for registration is 4/12/20.
Payments made after the deadline will increase to $650.
If you would like to apply for this training opportunity please read the information and fill out the application when you click the link below. (If you are not local to Oklahoma please bypass this offer for the Spring training and address the Summer Pathways program and proceed to the registration for the DONA International Birth Doula Training July 2020)
We look forward to seeing your application and helping you progress through the journey ahead as a DONA Certified Community Birth Doula.
