Annual Doula Retreat

Annual Doula Retreat: March 17-18, 2017

Spend some time finding balance with your doula sisters!



4th Annual Doula Retreat

This year’s retreat will focus on self care and empowering our clients. Friday evening, we’ll create birth paintings, share a potluck dinner, have our now-traditional “Show & Tell,” and possibly end the night around a fire eating s’mores.  Saturday morning’s sessions will focus on maintaining healthy boundaries and self care. In the afternoon, we’ll look at how we can help empower our less-empowered clients, and care for both ourselves and our clients in the face of obstetric violence. Expect to eat some great food and learn from each other in a relaxed, natural setting! (Approved for 6 DONA CEU’s)

Location:  Kanawahala Program Center (KPC), 831 Girl Scout Road, Chelsea, AL 35043

Cost: $50 for BirthWell Partners Volunteer Doulas/$60 Non-Volunteers

We try to keep the cost as low as possible, however, if the cost of the retreat is still a barrier, please let us know so we can find a way to make it possible for you to join us!

Have a client due around the time of our retreat?  If you are called away to a birth and cannot attend, we will refund 75% of any registration fees paid. If you have to leave mid-retreat to attend a birth, we can prorate the fees paid and issue a refund.
