Doula Mentorship Program at SCI

The Doula Mentorship Program at Sierra Childbirth Institute provides mentoring and support to birth and postpartum doulas at any stage of their journey. We have three highly experienced and skilled doula mentors. Our program also takes a village approach—mentees give and receive peer support with the other mentees in the program. The program provides continuing education classes, ongoing support from our mentors, and lots of Q&A time.
