CLB Doula Academy

Knowledge for Every Level

Cherishing Life Beginnings Doula Academy is an extension of Cherishing Life Beginnings Doula and Birth Education Services, LLC. CLB was created in 2019 out of the need of more representation of BIPOC Doulas in Columbus, GA, and surrounding areas. The mission of CLB Doula Academy is to educate and train BIPOC individuals (all are welcome) on the process and procedures of childbirth, holistic and spiritual approaches to healing birth traumas, comfort measures, complications in birth, and so much more. Our goal is to have a doula readily available for everyone woman in need. We take great pride in every course we teach.

The classes within this program are designed to provide you with an environment in which you can combine your compassion and caring with cultural, and holistic knowledge that will aid you in the success of being a vital member of your Mother Earth's birth team.
