Become a Doula.

Come curious. Leave Inspired.

No experience required! Crossover-certifications welcome!


Join us for a special weekend full of birthy goodness. Your trainer, Cindy Calvano, MSEd, CPDT, CD, AAHCC, LLLL, will take you through a transformative, yummy two-day Birth Arts International (BAI) birth doula intensive. Not only will you learn how to become a doula from an expert in the field, but you'll also have the opportunity to take part in the Savvy Birth Pro Workshop, developed by Evidence Based Birth at a discount.

Attending both the Birth Arts International Doula Training, and the Savvy Birth Pro Workshop will give you a great jumpstart to your career- and since the Savvy Birth Pro workshop is open to ALL birth professionals (not just those attending the training) you're bound to meet and network with others who love this work. Networking is HUGE in birth work, and this is a great way to get started.

  • Saturday, December 8, 5:30-8:30pm - Savvy Birth Pro Workshop (Optional add on)

About the Birth Arts International Doula Training:

During our time together you'll learn many of the skills necessary to be a compassionate, successful doula. The training will include tons of information, videos, hands-on activities, ethics, business tools, and SO much more.

Our workshops are designed not only for aspiring and seasoned doulas and nurses, but for anyone else who would like to learn more about birth in general, and helping birthing people during pregnancy, labor, and immediate postpartum.

Cindy truly cares about birthing families, evidence based care, and her students- and this is evident in her workshops. She is earthy, genuine, and has a sense of humor, making workshops with her gentle and dynamic. You'll spend the weekend with other amazing birthkeepers, and learn not just about being a birth doula, but about yourself.

About the Savvy Birth Pro Workshop:

Are you passionate about evidence based care, but regularly witness hospital policies taking precedence over your client's choice? It can be frustrating to watch clients receive care that isn’t based on research and not quite knowing how to help.

The Savvy Birth Pro Workshop (3 contact hours) was developed by Evidence Based Birth® to give professionals the skills you need to make a genuine difference and help your clients attain the best possible chance at evidence based care during pregnancy and labor.

The 3-hour Savvy Birth Pro Workshop will succeed in preparing you to help your clients assert their right to evidence based care in a respectful way that builds bridges, not walls. We believe the inspirational knowledge you will gain from the Savvy Birth Pro Workshop will have a positive ripple effect that extends to your clients, the professionals you work with and your community!

You’re no longer alone in the quest to help more families receive respectful, high quality maternity care! The Savvy Birth Pro Workshop does more than provide great skills; it creates a strong community of connected professionals who together share this important mission.

Contact Hours

By attending the workshop and completing an online evaluation, you will earn a certificate for 3 contact hours from Evidence Based Birth®, a continuing education provider for the Kentucky Board of Nursing # 7-0081. Nursing contact hours can be applied to most childbirth educator and doula certifications, as well as the Certified Professional Midwife credential. ​

​Learning Objectives

  1. ​Define evidence-based care and discuss statistics on the quality of birth settings in our local community
  2. Discuss the major reasons why we have an evidence-practice gap, including the power hierarchy and how it is a barrier to evidence-based, family-centered care
  3. Discuss ways that we can bridge the evidence-practice gap at the system level
  4. Discuss specific strategies we can use to help our clients obtain evidence-based care
