Demetria Clark. At the BAI training you as a student and as a group will be encouraged to learn from one another’s experiences regarding labor and birth whether it be your own or someone else’s that you have attended. I personally always look forward to learning and growing from what the group shares. YOU hold valuable information for everyone with your experiences and sharing them is POWERFUL to the group learning. This is just ONE of the beautiful things that sets BAI apart from other doula trainings. We will learn from each other and grow together!  BAI is so awesome and here are a few reasons why I personally chose to be trained and certified through this organization.
