Are you a birth doula trainer?  A trainer’s track is coming in 2021!  Learn how to incorporate what Dr. Gilliland has discovered about the learning brain, the laboring brain, individual and group process, teaching essential doula skills, incorporating medical anthropology, challenging classroom situations, unlearning ingrained white supremacy in the classroom, and preparing new doulas for the realities of the complex tasks they are taking on.  The trainer’s experience will incorporate additional discussion time, tasks, and long term support for each cohort. “Doulaing The Doula Trainer” will be launching in 2021!
