Full Spectrum Indigenous Doula Training Opportunity

MOMS is honored to be sponsoring another Full Spectrum Indigenous Doula training provided by Zaagi’idiwin. Doulas are a critical resource in supporting birthing people and families as they navigate pregnancy and the postpartum period. Indigenous doulas play an especially important role in supporting families as they provide education on peripartum concerns as well as encourage traditional practices and ceremony. Revitalization of Indigenous birth work is a key component in improving health outcomes for Indigenous peoples; recentering birth work is a foundation of Indigenous sovereignty and has the potential to counter systemic barriers that disproportionately impact our tribal communities and improve overall community health.
The Full Spectrum Indigenous Doula program will be held free-of-charge October 19-22 at Aaniiih Nakoda College on the Fort Belknap Reservation. Lunches and snacks will be provided each day of the training. Lodging is available in Harlem and Havre for those traveling from across the state. There are 25 training spots available; applications and references will be reviewed by a multidisciplinary committee. Priority will be provided to those working in tribal communities. This training is only available to those living and/or working in Montana.
