Monthly Member Education Sessions
Member Education Sessions take place on the third Tuesday of the month at either 5pm or 6pm PST / 8pm or 9pm EST. All meetings are conducted on Zoom. If you are unable to make it to the meetings, they are recorded and shared on our members and supporters resource pages so that you can view them at your leisure.
We offer a bi-monthly peer mentoring session, where we get together to chat about our work, share our knowledge with our peers, and gather in community. This is helpful for both working Doulas to get support with their work, as well as for prospective Doulas who are getting started.
Novice Doula Orientation
Are you looking to become an End of Life Doula and need some support to get started? We offer semi-annual sessions where we explore what training to take, how to set up your practice and more. If you are a supporting member and would like to join the EOLDAC as a registered member, we will take you through how to apply and ways to build your experience hours requirement.
Please view our upcoming events below, as well as previous events that are available for download in our members-only recording library.
