SEEN : Birdsong Mentorship 2019/2020

A 13 week Journey to unearth your innate value, amass skills, grow your business, tether to community, and feel SEEN!

"The Birdsong Brooklyn Mentorship opened my eyes and heart to new ways of approaching my work as a birth doula. Through the weekly exercises and group calls, I was able to explore my reasons for getting into birth work and uncover my value as a doula (and mother, and wife, and friend, and human being…). Erica and Laura attracted an unbelievable group of people to this mentorship! I learned so much from the other mentees and feel incredibly grateful to now carry pieces of their stories and knowledge with me. I honestly feel like I’ll be processing the information from this mentorship for months, maybe years, to come. As I continue on my doula journey, I’ll be able to use the mentorship exercises to reflect on and improve my work and my self. I’m so thankful for and in awe of the work that Laura and Erica do, and am proud to call them my mentors!"

- Meagan Thompson, Birth Doula, About Birth, LLC

"Laura and Erica are absolutely wonderful! I enjoyed learning all about the ins and outs of doula work while also being reminded to care for myself as well. One of the great things about this mentorship is that Laura and Erica mentor you holistically. This mentoring program left me feeling held, valued, and capable."

- Briani George, Birth & Postpartum Doula

"The Birdsong Brooklyn duo literally changed my life! I will forever be grateful to them for their realness, their vulnerability, and their humor. Through the laughter and the tears I was pushed and grew. What I loved about it the most is that it was so much bigger than doulaing... It actually opened my mind and heart to finding value in myself as a human and as a woman. I feel incredibly blessed to consider Laura and Erica my mentors."

- Sarah Hitman, End of Life Doula

This is a 13 week immersive online program for doulas, healers and creative business professionals looking to enrich their understanding of their value, who they are and how they can bring what they want into their work. If you're looking to be seen, you're in the right place.
What is the time commitment?
This is your show! We will be available one time per week on a live video to talk through the week's themes and answer questions. The lives will be saved and uploaded for ongoing support, you can send questions in advance to be answered on the lives if you cannot join at the actual live time. We will also provide weekly exercises, guest luminary videos, self care offerings, peer to peer projects and a private Facebook Group, moderated by us, for ongoing discussion, resources and education. You can be an A+ student and spend all of your free time working on and with the materials provided, or you can dip in at your leisure and get out what you put in.
What kind of doulas can join? What if I'm not a doula?
Any and all. We've had birth, postpartum, loss, abortion and end of life doulas. In a previous year of SEEN one participant swore she would become a divorce doula! The Birdsong definition of a doula is anyone who non-judgmentally supports another person across a threshold. Even if you're not a doula but think this might benefit you, you're probably right. We've had therapist, healers, creative professionals, stay at home moms, talent agents and dojo owners. If you work in service to others you're welcome here and deserve to be seen.
When are the weekly gathering calls?
Our weekly gathering calls will be on Mondays at noon EST. If this time does not work for your schedule you are able to post your questions in our private community group or send directly to us to get addressed and then can listen to the recorded call afterwards which will be placed into the student portal upon finishing.

"When I entered this program I was completely unsure if I would reenter/ continue being a doula. After 10 years of experience and then huge life changes I didn't know if it would still my 100% calling. Thanks to my conversation with Laura I entered the program with and open heart and mind. To say it has been life changing for me is an understatement. I feel validated, confident and most of all valued within our community because of this mentorship program. it has been a long time since I feel like I have like minded professionals in my corner. I am forever grateful to Laura and Erica for their open, vulnerable, humorous, intelligent, and inspirational mentorship program. We laughed, we cried and we will all continue to kick ass."

- Jean Marie, Birth and Postpartum Doula

Course Curriculum

"The mentorship was just what I needed for my present journey. I was really struggling on how to build my doula business. I learned practical skills and identified some personal blocks that were holding me back. I found my self referencing weekly modules to partner and friends. Most importantly I finally feel like I found community and sisterhood within the doula world. I did not feel supported after my doula training and certification. Now I have a support system to help me navigate my doula journey and that’s priceless. Laura and Erica introduced me to so many life skills. Mentorship has set me up to reach my goals and that’s super empowering. "
