When you decide to become an Abuela doula, you will be encouraged to reach back into your cultural heritage to bring forward the traditions of your mothers and your mothers’ mothers. The role of a doula is to support and to be with women as they travel through pregnancy, birth and those early postnatal days. To sit in and share the wisdom of the Abuelas, the grandmothers.

Our Unique Birth Prep Course

This course is delivered over 4 days. We come together to discuss birth physiology, how to support clients through the antenatal period, postnatal support and care, business and working as a doula/birthkeeper. 

Throughout it all we embed cultural safety and humility.

We explore a wide range of topics under the headings of:
  • The Role of a Doula in Inclusive and Loving Care
  • Supporting Birthing People During Labour and Birth
  • Advocacy and Empowerment in Birth
  • Postpartum Care and Self-Care for Doulas

What I loved about the Abuela course, was that it was really accessible and went to the pace that suited me and my learning style. The cohorts were small and intimate meaning that we received quality training and were able to interact without feeling overwhelmed by a sea of others. 

One thing I loved about the course was the depth of cultural knowledge, learning about our own historic and current day, cultural traditions, as well as those of other cultures. The course also looked at the race divide within the health sector and challenged us as new doulas to look at some of the ways we could close that gap. For me is also filtered through into other areas, such as disability, sexuality, and gender identity allowing me to see where I could improve my own practices in these areas, to be more aware, more knowledgeable and more accessible. 

Another thing I loved about the training Mars provided was the inclusivity around the teaching of subjects, and the language used. This didn't detract from the teachings of the wise women, and their ancestral traditions and teachings. It did however enable me to utilise and adapt these traditions and teachings into my modern-day doula practice to suit my clients and their families intersectionally. 

I'm forever grateful to Mars for developing such a brilliant Birth Prep course, my cohort of fellow Abuelitx are fantastic. And I know I have a family in them forever.

The Human Kind Doula

So grateful for the way you taught us to ask questions and get them to do the work in the same way you've done for us. Had you realised you were transferring from doula-ing at the birth of babies to doula-ing the birth of doulas when you started running the Abuela courses?
