The Indigenous CAPC Training




A 6-week course designed to help you transition from feeling unclear about delivering culturally appropriate pregnancy care to feeling confident in your cultural knowledge and abilities to continue fostering positive and engaging relationships with prenatal and postpartum Indigenous people and their families.

Coordinated by

The Biidaaban Doula Collective, meaning “Sunrise” in Anishinaabemowin – is made up of a group of Indigenous doulas who work with midwives and doctors to provide full-circle informational, emotional, physical, and spiritual support to Indigenous people and their families during their pregnancy, birth, and postpartum journeys. They also provide support around reproductive health experiences including, fertility, abortion, perinatal loss, and adoption.

All profits of the course are supporting our Indigenous Doulas to provide services at no cost to First Nation, Métis and Inuit people and their families who reside in the North Simcoe Muskoka region.

The Indigenous CAPC Training was designed for you if: 

  • You are a professional practitioner that has an interest in birth work.
  • You focus on providing pregnancy care in the form or prenatal, birth or postpartum support.
  • You are a birth work professional established in your business and seeking professional development.
  • You are noticing that you serve indigenous populations and would like to have a little more knowledge and support to properly foster relationships and increase positive care experiences and encourage engagement.
  • You might be a doctor, midwife, nurse, doula, therapist, or other.
