Community Doula Training & Certification Initiative
The Coco Collective is a group of birth work educators who have teamed up to provide dedicated, culturally-sensitive, trauma-informed training, mentorship support, and resources to educate, engage and empower aspiring community doulas. Our goal is to prepare them to provide quality care, understanding and addressing the intricate needs of Black & Indigenous People Of Color (BIPOC) throughout their journey preconception to postpartum.
Our efforts to enlarge the perinatal workforce by adding more community doula birth workers will also help undoubtedly improve maternal outcomes, especially for BIPOC birthing people and those navigating different vulnerabilities i.e. incarceration or housing- insecurity; or those living maternity deserts.
