Spending a weekend with Kim was an incredible way to kick off BAI Certified Doula training. Kim is a warm, accessible, knowledgeable trainer and role model for the aspiring doula. She provides a safe, non-judgmental environment to her class, where everyone felt open to share, question, learn, connect and have fun. This open and calm teaching method seems to directly mirror her presence as a doula. The class included a broad overview of many elements that inform the doula role: childbirth/anatomy basics, how to provide emotional support, self-reflection and awareness, physical coping and massage techniques, scope of practice and the logistics of running a doula business. One of the greatest takeaways from this training was Kim's encouragement to look inward when finding your "voice" as a doula, that the skills you'll continue to hone are already within you, and every individual's personality will manifest itself differently in the role of doula. I left feeling inspired and ready to continue on this journey of helping to support and inform our fellow women of their options in birth. I am excited to train and practice following the holistic framework of BAI.
