We’re excited to announce that CWBH Member Lisa Moody just supervised her first birth as a doula trainee. Welcome to the world, baby Legend!
Lisa was part of our cohort of aspiring birthworkers who received a full scholarship to the Mama Glow Doula Homeschool Program. All doula trainees are equipped to provide guidance and support to birthing people during pregnancy, birth, and in the early postpartum period.
Lisa knew from her first tour on Opening Day at the Center for Wellbeing & Happiness that she would apply to the program.
“It all started here,” says Lisa. “I was like…Mama Glow..scholarship, I’m in!”
We have launched scholarship applications for the next cohort, which will meet virtually on Sundays, 12-3:30 p.m. from July 16 – August 20, 2023. If you would like to apply and to work to improve the experience of birth for Black and Brown people in the Lower East Side, please fill out this form by July 5th.
