Birth doula mentorship
Pacific Birth Collective’s Birth Doula Mentorship Project!
Pacific Birth Collective is committed to helping new doulas succeed in any way we can! We believe that the more doulas we have, the more families will choose them for their births. To be included in the program, the Intern must have attended some variety of doula training and become a member of Pacific Birth Collective. To be a Mentor, you must be an experienced birth attendant, a member of PBC and have attended enough births to have a good understanding of what a beginning doula might need assistance with. Mentors and Mentees do not have to be on the same island, if both parties agree to a working model of distance mentorship.
The benefits for the Mentor in our program includes:

Acceptance by a Mentor is not guaranteed, it will depend on the number and availability of Mentors in the Program.
Interns are encouraged to charge for their services, but may choose to volunteer for their first birth or two.
Suggested rates for Interns and Doulas according to experience are:
