About this event

Boston Doula Circle welcomes you to learn from the hard-earned wisdom of doulas, whether or not birthing with a doula is part of your plan!

Our instructors are trained by major organizations including Lamaze and BADT. In addition, what makes our classes unique is our years of on-the-ground experience as advocates and mentors for families as they navigate the powerful events of birth.

Doulas are experts in unmedicated birth for parents who choose this option. We also help families learn to make decisions about medical options that are most likely to maximize benefits and minimize risks.

Birth cannot be controlled, but it can be prepared for -- and this can make the difference between a traumatic vs. an empowering birth!

Upcoming dates:

  • Thursday, February 16, 12:00-1:15 PM Eastern Time on Zoom. Topic: Make the Most of Your Support People During Birth -- ***POSTPONED***
  • Monday, March 13, 6:30-7:45 PM Eastern Time on Zoom. Topic: Unmedicated Birth Q&A -- Everything You Want to Know!
  • Friday, April 28, 12:00-1:30 PM Eastern Time on Zoom. Topic: Be Prepared for the 5 Types of Births

These classes are offered for free as a community service; donations are welcome but not required! One "ticket" order admits you and a support person watching Zoom on the same screen. Classes are open to expectant parents, as well as doulas and other Maternal Child Health professionals.
