Doula Training In Portland, Oregon

Have you been looking for an in-person AND online doula training? You are in huuuuugeee luck then, because HERBAL is coming to Portland this August 2020!!!!!

Only 2-3% of Portland’s population are choosing home births, this is something that can be changed with the right community activists and birth professionals speaking up and educating people! The 97-98% birthing in the hospitals also need a substantial amount of support, to obtain their natural, minimal intervention birth plans. There is really only one hospital that in our research, and from anecdotal experience from local birth professionals, that really works to give moms a close-to-birth-center experience in the hospital, and that seems to be Legacy Emanuel. There needs to be more integration and foot work to make hospitals a safer place for people to birth, and to transfer to when there are low-risk needs, and high-risk needs. That birth professional to lay the groundwork could be YOU!
