About NYC Doula Corps

Through this program, selected new doulas will be invited to attend a DONA-approved doula training workshop taught by Rina Crane in exchange for attending three volunteer births for underserved families in New York City. Corps doulas will be assigned mentors from our sister-organization, the NYC Doula Collective, benefiting from the insight of some of our most experienced professionals. In addition, while Corps doulas are not eligible to join the Collective, they will have access to multiple Collective resources while with the program, including Tier One referrals up to their 10th birth (after completing their volunteer births) and continued education through our monthly Collective breakout meetings.
