We are so excited to have you join us as a Birth Boot Camp Birth Doula!
Covid-19 has made it difficult for trainees to attend their required birth observations. We are being very lenient about this requirement. We still want you to reach out to those in your community to try and find births to attend. Keep in contact with your trainer and let her know how things are going with this requirement. If needed, we can grant an extension so that you can complete this after attending the training workshop. Be sure to contact us with any further questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
