Are you a birth doula, postpartum doula, childbirth educator, lactation consultant, or other perinatal professional serving Palm Beach County mothers and families?
Please join me for a monthly gathering where we can encourage one another, connect, share, and grow in our profession.
Where & When
For safety purposes, the specific meeting time and central Palm Beach County location are not listed on this website. Details will be given to those interested in joining after completion of a brief initial questionnaire and signing of an agreement to keep confidential any sensitive information or stories that are shared.
The purpose of the Palm Beach Doula Circle is to connect local doulas and other birth workers and enable them to:
- learn from fellow doulas
- master skills and ideas by teaching others
- process and grow though challenging work situations
- develop stronger relationships with potential backup doulas
- stay informed about industry news and opportunities, and
- expand our resource lists
Meetings are open to both independent doulas and agency contracted doulas, as well as doulas-to-be who have enrolled in a training course or workshop. Other professionals who work with pregnant or new parents or newborns may also request to be included.
There are no dues or fees to join the circle or attend meetings.
It is suggested to bring something to sit upon, plus a beverage for yourself and a snack if you prefer.
Any client experiences shared in doula circle will remain confidential.
History of the Palm Beach Doula Circle
When I began training for my doula career in 2014, I discovered a monthly doula circle hosted at the office of former local midwife, Connie Mullen. The group shared a trove of birth stories and resources that helped me quickly mature in the doula profession so I could become a better servant to my clients. Although the group became defunct when the doors were closed at Connie Mullen’s practice a couple years later, the bonds and knowledge I gained have been valuable to me ever since. I am now hosting a similar gathering to pay it forward.
