Community Doula Training & Certification Initiative
The Coco Collective is a group of birth workers, childbirth educators and professionals in public health and more who have teamed up to provide dedicated, culturally-sensitive, trauma-informed, and resilience-oriented training. In addition we seek to help current and aspiring doulas through mentorship support, business development, community building and more to help educate, engage and empower. Our goal is to prepare doulas to provide compassionate care, understanding and addressing the intricate needs of Black & Indigenous People Of Color (BIPOC) through their journey from preconception to postpartum.
Our efforts to enlarge the perinatal workforce by adding more community doulas will also help undoubtedly support the improvement of maternal outcomes, especially for BIPOC mamas (birthing people) and those navigating different vulnerabilities i.e. Substance Use Disorder (SUD), incarceration, housing-insecurity; or living maternity deserts.
