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.

Mentorship Program Overview

You MUST have successfully completed a doula training and must commit to a minimum of 2-months with your mentor. Certification is not required.
Cherishing Life Beginnings Mentorship Program is designed to support doulas at any stage of their journey to becoming confident, compassionate, and skilled birth workers. This program is virtual so all doulas are welcome no matter your location. This unique program builds confidence in your doula work while ensuring you gain the skills necessary to be effective and competent for your families. We encourage all doulas interested in expanding their birth community, attaining more clients, and enriching their knowledge base to apply to the program. Services in this program are currently provided by Cherishing Life Beginnings Services founder, Ife Adebowale, CD(DONA), CLC.
In our 2 month mentorship program, doulas will be provided with evidence based information, practical tools and an opportunity to develop your skills and business as a doula, monthly 1:1 sessions, opportunities for local shadowing and receiving leads for birth certification, possible paid internship (local residence only), and more. It is our goal to deepen your understanding of pregnancy, birth and postpartum and to support you in becoming a confidant doula while getting you prepared to launch your doula business. Although there is a 2 month minimum for the mentorship program, doulas are welcome to continue beyond the initial 2 months on a month by month basis or another 2 month term at a discounted rate of $200 per month.
