This weekend I had the opportunity to go to the amazing retreat held by Birth Boot Camp (BBC) in Dallas, Texas. BBC puts on this retreat every three years for their doula and childbirth educators. It was amazing to meet so many people that I have only met via our FABULOUS- and I do mean fabulous online community. BBC cares so much about us as educators, doulas, and business owners- they not only speak it with their words, they show it with their actions.
Over the course of the weekend we had the chance to meet some amazing speakers, midwives, and business owners. I was inspired not only to provide myself more self care, but also given applicable steps to help grow my business. All of this is so helpful when you are a small business owner, who needs all the help she can get!
When I originally became a doula, I certified with DONA. While they are national recognized, I got absolutely no business support or mentorship from them. I finished my workshop and never heard from them. BBC is different. Not only do we have access to the most amazing curriculum and resources, we have access to hundreds of wonderful people, business owners, and mentors- who are literally a phone call away- cheering us on from afar, and truly invested in our work. It is an amazing community to be a part of! I highly recommend Birth Boot Camp if you are looking to become a doula or a Childbirth Educator- you will be welcome in this AMAZING family!
