Event description

Description

Being a doula means not only taking on an exciting and caring profession, it means starting up your own small business. What many doula trainings often leave out is how to go about writing a solid contract that fits the needs of you and your clients and protects you from the ups and downs of this work. I’ve been combining my background in legal research with my decade of birth work experience in several states and abroad to offer private consultations and workshops on contract writing to doulas and midwives for the past two years.

I start with the basics and bare bones of making a contract to demystify the process then branch out into role playing and Q&A style workshopping so that the attendees get to hear what’s relevant to their specific community.

Some covered topics include :

  • Cancellation vs termination

  • Scope of Practice basics

  • Setting rates and taking payments

  • Writing different contracts for different services

  • Branding and consistency across printed and web material

  • Wording liability protection

  • Doula-to-Doula contracts

  • HIPPA basics, intake forms, and note taking protections

  • Copyright basics and web presence

Workshops are divided up between Birth Doulas (early class) and Postpartum Doulas (evening class), though you are welcome to attend whichever session works best in your schedule. Early session is best also for birth photographers, yoga instructors, placenta encapsulators, lactation educators, and herbalists and the Late session might be most applicable to nannies, traveling doulas, midwives, and nutritionists.

Taught at the beautiful office of Birthday Presence in Park Slope Brooklyn, I'm bringing this workshop back to the place where I was trained as a doula ten years ago, and just some subway stops away from where I used to do legal research at a UN affiliated non-profit! Come learn from a doula who understands the ins-and-outs of this profession, no matter where you are on your birth worker journey -- just starting, trying to start a collective, or needing some fine tuning twenty years into this calling.
