Mentorship Program

Grow your doula practice and receive expert guidance from advanced doulas through a mentorship program with NYC Birth Village founders Karla and Narchi! We draw from 20+ years of combined experience and hundreds of births attended as well as the achievement of building our own successful solo practices, doula partnership and most recently a vibrant doula agency.

Join Our Doula Agency

Build your birth and/or postpartum business with the help of a doula network. We focus on a partnership model so if you don’t have a partner, we’d be happy to help you find a compatible one!  

Here's what we offer:

Training + Mentorship

For beginner and intermediate doulas looking to boost their career. We offer additional trainings, guidance and support as you build your business. We’ll cover topics from improving interviews to setting boundaries as well as be a soundboard for the ups and downs up running a business.

Community

We make it a point to get together every 6-8 weeks for doula meetings so that our doulas can learn from one another and exchange best practices as well as make some new friends along the way.

Exposure

It doesn’t matter how good of a doula you are if you don’t get seen! We’ll increase your exposure by posting you and your partner’s (if applicable) profile up on our website so that you can get the word out about your work and build your business.

We are currently looking for birth and/or postpartum doulas who have supported 5 or more families.

To apply, fill out the form below!

“Our sessions together brought my old school practice into the modern age. She helped me with everything: creating service packages, marketing, contracting, organizing finances, tweaking my website, growing my client base and keeping track of scheduling (which, as any birth worker knows, is not an easy thing).”  Maria, class of 2022
