This program is open to all regardless of previous experience.
Our work at Mama Glow is to improve the experience of birth for people everywhere. We are changing the face of maternal health by empowering birthing people at the threshold of change in their lives. We see birth as a unique opportunity to support and empower all people as well as educate society about the innate strength of the body and the sacred process of pregnancy and birth. We offer full spectrum support for fertility, birth clients and new parents, 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 birthing folks. We also work to democratize birth support and have birth doulas available for every person or family that desires one.
As birth activism is central to the pulse of our mission and training, we 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. This is a CERTIFICATE PROGRAM. It is our belief that every doula who emerges from the immersion program should be equipped to serve birthing people during pregnancy, birth and early postpartum.
We are thrilled to be hosting our LIVE digital MAMA GLOW DOULA HOMESCHOOL: LEVEL 1 program for prospective birth doulas.
The weekly intensive will be jam packed with content, but convenient for you easily integrate into your busy schedule. The course meets once per week on Sundays and you have weekly homework assignments to be completed. All LIVE classes are recorded for on-demand viewing, so this course is ideal for folks in various time zones around the world.

LEVEL 1 is the first step towards full MAMA GLOW DOULA certification. Beyond the homeschool weekly program, 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 in-class training period. 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 1 will prepare newly minted doulas to begin working in all settings, including in traditionally underserved and under-estimated 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 Mama Glow Doula Trainees (DT) and Mama Glow Certified Doulas (CD) to secure birth clients around the USA and the world through our bespoke Doula Matching service.
Curriculum including continuing education modules will be reviewed at the beginning of the course. A digital entrance interview will be requested a week prior to your training start date and all trainees will have an optional online group orientation a week before class starts to meet your classmates.
