This webinar will dive into the realities of the new birth landscape in the USA given the growing COVID-19 crisis. We will discuss actionable tools that doulas can use to help support their birthing clients. We will unpack the consequences of this new policy and what people can do to challenge it. We will also support birthing people with advocacy tools. Whether you’re being confronted with birthing without your doula or birthing alone, we are going to focus on action steps. How do I as a patient ask my doctor questions? How do I as a doula support folks virtually? How do we coach effectively so clients give birth confidently? This is about supporting before, during and after birth and protecting the birth village. We will also explore virtual support and techniques to pivot during this time. This is a webinar for birthing people and folks who provide support as doulas, partners and others who want to help amplify this issue.
