Redesigning Birth Work For The Future

At The InTune Mother Society we believe every family, neighborhood, church, community, and employer should have a designated person(s) or staff who is knowledgeable of how to tend to the cycles of life in a traditional and sustainable way.

This is the real economy.

In February of 2020, The InTune Mother, LLC opened a brick and mortar Holistic Family Planning Center- Beehive Birth Consulting. We did so with a sustainable model in mind to create a strategic relationship between our capital interests, while providing an innovative solution to complex issues. This meant directing our investments into the future of Community-Based Reproductive Well-being.

Our goal is to make sure that EVERY teen, woman, family, and veteran has access to our sustainble systems of care. This was especially important for us when supporting underrepresented childbearing families in the Black, Brown, and Indigenous communities. We identify with the FACT that having access to culturally specific care is life saving and transformational when it comes to the childbirth continuum.

This meant recruiting, training, and employing women from various community demographics to participate in an Earn and Serve business model that serves both the those from affluent communities as well as those in economic hardship. By doing so, we are expanding our Holistic Family Planning Center, with the help of our community partners.

In order to recover from the set backs of COVID and really impact the community in a sustainable way, we had to make a hard pivot. So, we partnered with the Oklahoma Department of Labor and the Central Oklahoma Workforce Innovation Board (COWIB) to develop a 12-month (2144 hour) community based Perinatal Wellness Apprenticeship program that begins with reprogramming the way we identify with the valuation and landscape of Community Health Workers from a Perinatal Wellness lens in Oklahoma. We have built a pathway to provide an innovative model of care that will provide a thriving career path and sustainable vocation in community-based perinatal health with the help of partners of The National Perinatal Task Force.

All apprenticeship participates who compete our 1-year program earn a national, industry-recognized credential, with a special focus on our (4P+) Care model.

We are looking to hire (5) dedicated staff members who have an interest in supporting childbearing families. Applications for our Perinatal Wellness Coach program are open for enrollment on a rolling basis. Register for our Spring Cohort beginning March 2022.
