The virtual program will include hours of LIVE video chat training via Zoom with Latham Thomas and modules with guest teachers, assignments to complete at home. Plus opportunities for Q&A with Latham and ample time to connect digitally for face-to-face chat online with your doula sisters. Plus Level 1 Doula Trainees will have a designated TA (a Teacher Assistant) to help support you during and through the end of the program. This program is open to all regardless of experience.

Our work at Mama Glow is to improve the experience of birth for women everywhere. We are changing the face of maternal health by empowering women at the threshold of change in their lives. We see birth as a unique opportunity to support and empower women as well as educate society about the innate strength of the female body and the sacred process of pregnancy and birth. We offer full spectrum support for fertility, birth clients and new mothers, holding their hands as they transition into this new phase of their lives. We seek to dismantle the stigmas and fears around the birth process for women. We also work to democratize birth support and have birth doulas available for every woman who desires one.

As birth activism is central to the pulse of our mission and training, we will weave the thread of advocacy with our distinguished, world-renown and award-winning guest teachers. Our unique format will allow us to provide foundational LEVEL 1 training. The course includes preparation and education for birth doula support. It is our belief that every doula who emerges from the immersion program should be equipped to serve women before, during and after pregnancy.

We are thrilled to be hosting our first LIVE digital MAMA GLOW DOULA HOMESCHOOL: LEVEL 1 program for prospective birth doulas.

The 6-Day intensive will be jam packed with content, but convenient for you easily integrate into your schedule. The course meets daily with the exception of Thursday, which is a day off.

LEVEL 1 is the first step towards full MAMA GLOW DOULA certification. Beyond the homeschool week, doulas-in-training will need to complete mandatory coursework, reading, essays, attend mandatory LEVEL 1 Modules (virtually) that support continuing education for doulas on the path to LEVEL 1 certification. All this work will begin after your initial training weekend. After completion of LEVEL 1 you will be eligible to take the LEVEL 2 program which focuses on Complicated Birth and Postpartum Doula Support. LEVEL 3 is our apprenticeship level for experienced doulas.

LEVEL 1 will prepare newly minted doulas to begin working in all settings including in traditionally underserved communities. Many of our doulas have successfully transitioned into full time doula work. Our program is a pathway to securing work as a practicing doula and we provide opportunities for our doula trainees and certified doulas to secure birth clients around the USA and the world through our booking service.

Curriculum including continuing education modules will be reviewed at the training weekend. A digital entrance interview will be requested a week prior to your training start date.

Curriculum will be reviewed at the beginning of the training week.
