Birth symbolizes a new beginning. A fresh start.

Unlearning what we’ve been taught throughout history and what society told us we are.

In the NBDA Birth Doula Training program, we bring back what was lost or stolen from us as women, while we incorporate an improved model of Doula business.

The mission of the NBDA Birth Doula Training program is to embody the ancient healing ways of our ancestors, to empower all women as they reclaim the right to their bodies and their experiences, from Birth & Beyond.
