Monthly Members Sessions
Members Sessions take place on the third Tuesday of the month at 6pm PST / 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.
Alternating with the Peer Mentoring sessions is our bi-monthly book club. It's an on-going club so there is no requirement to commit for every session; please join us when the book piques your interest! We aim to include Canadian authors as much as possible, and you may even find a few of them joining our group for a discussion of their book!
Please view our upcoming events below, as well as previous events that are available for download in our members-only recording library.

Join End-of-Life Doula Janine Jordison in a conversation on how to support children through grief, death and dying.
Children experience grief just like adults do. The difference is how they do it. This workshop introduces what a healthy relationship with grief for children can look like. It provides an understanding of the role of the caregiver and what we can do to help support children.
We explore how to use simple tools such as books and how they can help us create conversations around the circle of life. We hold space for each other while we navigate some questions that children may present that we may not have answers to.
Together we help each other remove the pressure of having to deliver that perfect message to children and cultivate the opportunity for children to understand grief on their own terms.
Janine found her passion in education around children’s grief as her career progressed as an end-of-life death doula. Having been witness to the lack of support around grief, death and dying as a child, she understands the importance of this subject for children. Her greatest lessons are from experiencing her own grief and it brought her to a place that has allowed her to create space and resources so that children can be supported and acknowledged.
