About Birth Arts International

Birth Arts InternationalBirth Arts International was originally founded in 2000 by Demetria Clark as the Green Mountain Doula Guild. Since then the organization has expanded and grown into Birth Arts International a division of Demetria Clark Education Services LLC. We have gone from a regional body to one that is working internationally, offering extensive doula, postpartum doula, childbirth educator, midwifery assistant, and advanced doula trainings. Birth Arts International is considered the premier holistic doula training organization, and it is known for its support and progressive student support practices. Birth Arts International, as of 2014, has trained over 20,000 birth workers worldwide, and that number continues to grow year after year.

Standards of Practice

Birth Arts International Philosophy

The birthing person deserves to be honored and supported as she embarks on this most challenging, heart-fulfilling, and expressive journey. Birth Arts educational programs are for those who want to get to the heart of what it means to be “holding space for their client”. Being a doula is truly being with women, where they are emotionally, spiritually, and physically.

Birth Arts programs venture to follow this more natural way of passing along women’s wisdom, allowing and following women in her natural progression through pregnancy and labor. We honor and know the value of technology and technocratic options, but we also know that the value of natural birth and all that offers is priceless. We believe that nature and science can coexist and clients can truly benefit from this, by trusting their bodies first. We want Birth Arts International Professionals to trust in their inner wisdom, education, and trust in their clients, to serve the way they need to be served.

We believe our students should be supported in the same way they will be supporting the women and families they work with. Each student receives attention via telephone, snail mail, or on-line contact. We look forward to meeting them in person at one of the workshops, virtually online, over the phone, we believe in connection. Each student will have their unique timing and way of completing the program. We want to help you become a compassionate and skilled birth caregiver.

We expect you to take the responsibility for doing the work, to take the initiative to ask questions and do research, and to communicate clearly about your needs pertaining to the program.

We hope Birth Arts International offers the kind of birth education you are seeking.

All enrollments in programs are non-refundable.
