Anyone who is interested in supporting birthing families is eligible to join! We especially encourage bilingual folks, as there is a great need for multi-lingual birth support in our community.

Please note:

Aspiring doulas who enroll in this workshop must attend a 4 hour follow-up workshop to enroll as a MediCal Doula. This workshop will also be held at The Circle on a future date. You will not be required to work exclusively with MediCal families, but being enrolled as a MediCal provider will allow you to expand your reach in our community and serve families who may not otherwise be able to afford doula support.
