We provide publicly accessible events and training on improving the maternal health system to better support women experiencing disadvantage.
We also run training programs for maternity care and social support workers who want to improve their knowledge, skills and understanding about supporting women with a range of complex care needs during pregnancy, child birth and early parenting. Where relevant our training is accredited by relevant bodies, such as the Australian College of Midwives.
Upcoming professional training
Bicultural doula training:
We provide annual scholarships for bicultural people with lived experience of social and financial hardship, to participate in our 18-week doula training program.
Through this program you will learn all the theoretical and practical skills needed to run your own private doula practice, including mentoring support from an existing Birth for Humankind doula. We request that you commit to providing volunteer doula support to at least three Birth for Humankind clients in exchange for receiving this scholarship. We will open applications for new participants around November each year and the program begins in February each year.
