For Childbirth Professionals:

Queer Birth Project is currently presenting a wide range of trainings for doulas, childbirth educators, lactation professionals and providers on LGBTQ cultural competency. Check here, or on Facebook for upcoming training dates, or email queerbirthproject@gmail.com for more information.

Our trainings offer a wide range of information on LGBTQ people and birth/parenting (sources and handouts provided), with sections including: LGBTQ families by the numbers (statistics), current definitions, health disparities experienced by LGBTQ people, discussion and activities to explore our own identities and privileges, role-playing to practice language and interrupting oppression, and action steps to help birth workers deepen their allyship and provide competent support to potential LGBTQ clients and families.

All training participants who pass our participation quiz will receive a certificate for their website, and to use for DONA certification or re-certifcation, Hypnobabies re-certification, and possibly other organizations as well (check with your certifying organization).
