​​​DONA Approved Birth Doula Trainers

Mountain Midwifery Birth Center has partnered with Sterling Doulas, LLC to provide complimentary doula support for Medicaid families. When families fall on hard times they still deserve support through one of life’s most precious moments, the birth of their child. Doulas who have attended an entire Sterling Doulas Birth Doula Workshop have the opportunity to support these families in their time of need. Contact Ann or Penny for more details.  

Opportunities for doulas to support those in need

Sterling Doulas has been training quality doulas for several years. We’re proud of the fact that our students know how to work as team players with staff, while fully supporting the birthing family. We are happy to connect qualified, certifying doulas with families who may not otherwise be able to afford this invaluable service. DONA International’s vision is “A doula for every person who wants one” we would like to see that become a reality. Families feel free to contact Ann at 303-916-7969 or ann.pollack@sterlingdoulas.com who will be happy to connect you with a doula you can afford.

DONA International Certified Birth Doula

Penny & Ann together make up Sterling Doulas, LLC. They are both experienced certified doulas and DONA-Approved Birth Doula Trainers. For 5 years they enjoyed teaching jointly, however they began branching out in similar, yet different directions. Although, both of them are still very much involved with doula work, including trainings and the birth community, it has worked extremely well for them to offer separate trainings. This way they are able to offer more date options and keep the groups to a smaller more intimate size. Please contact each trainer for more details.

Their goal is to enhance your experience through emotional and physical support.  Their only agenda is your happiness and satisfaction with your labor and birth experience.  They both enjoy a mutually respectful relationship with hospital care providers.

Their services include two prenatal visits, unlimited phone and email consultation, along with one in person postpartum visit.  At this visit they will present detailed birth notes from your labor and birth experience.  Additionally, their fee includes breastfeeding problem-solving and additional resources as needed.
