Our work at Mama Glow is to improve the experience of birth for women everywhere.

We are changing the face of maternal health by empowering women at the threshold of change in their lives. We see birth as a unique opportunity to support and empower women as well as educate society about the innate strength of the female body and the sacred process of pregnancy and birth. We offer full spectrum support for fertility, birth clients and new mothers, 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 women. We also work to democratize birth support and have birth doulas available for every woman who desires one.

To that end we are thrilled to be hosting our first program of the Spring 2020 season, the March MAMA GLOW LEVEL 1 DOULA IMMERSION TRAINING PROGRAM! Boasting doula trainees from around the United States and from 6 continents, our immersive doula training is back again by popular demand. This is immersion will take place at our beautiful flagship in New York, Circle by Mama Glow, meeting June 19-21, 2020 in Brooklyn, NY.

The 3-Day transformative intensive will begin at 10am-6pm daily and is packed with material, ritual, and action. We will lay the foundation of training for the next generation of birth workers who we hope will grow with Mama Glow. In this intense political climate where the future of women's health is uncertain, skilled birth workers are needed on the front lines. And with the growing black maternal health crisis in the USA, this is a critical moment to advance education and create more access to birth doulas. Reproductive Justice and birth activism is central to the pulse of our mission and training.

Our immersion program is grounded in:

Activism + Advocacy

Ancestral Tradition + Ancient wisdom

Birth + Breastfeeding

Evidence-Based Research + the Ethereal

Mindfulness + Movement

Rhythm + Ritual

Sacred Anatomy + Sex

Self-Care + Spirituality

LEVEL 1 is the first step towards full MAMA GLOW DOULA certification. Beyond the Immersion weekend, 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 training weekend. After completion of LEVEL 2 you will be MAMA GLOW certified. LEVEL 3 is our apprenticeship level for experienced doulas. LEVEL 1 will prepare newly minted doulas to begin working in all settings including in traditionally underserved 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 doula trainees and certified doulas to secure birth clients around the USA and the world through our booking service.

Curriculum including continuing education modules will be reviewed at the training weekend. A digital entrance interview will be requested a week prior to your training start date.
