I invite you to train with me as a birth or postpartum doula here in Memphis, TN or virtually! I offer live, in person and live virtual trainings trainings with intimate group numbers.

Embodied Doula Trainings is a nationally-recognized doula training and certifying organization that I co-founded with NYC based doula, Celina Wigle-Olias-Varga. Our organization believes in delivering better, more thorough doula trainings, as well as offering lifetime certification with a straight forward certification process. We believe in engaging our students with the embodied aspects of doula work, as well as prepare you to have a thriving business. Our organization aims to be actively anti-racist, inclusive, and affirming to all people. We weave trauma informed care into our trainings, and celebrate different learning styles and neuro and physical diversity. To learn about our Mission, click here.

We offer financial support for BIPOC students, partial support for others, and payment plans for all who want them.
