Community Doula Training & Certification Initiative

We define a doula as a mom servant. We serve mom while she is pregnant, during labor, and postpartum. The SCOPE of a doula is to Support, be a Compassionate Companion, Organize, Prepare, and Educate. We help dads and other significant members of the mom's village understand their influence and important role as they support moms. We are here to help ease the burden and ensure mom also has a voice in her care experience through advocacy.

 

The Coco Collective is a group of birth workers, childbirth educators, 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 while addressing the intricate needs of Black and 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.
