ABOUT THE EVENT:
Q: Are tickets still available?

Q: I am a doula, can I come?
We welcome all who want to expand their knowledge and skill surrounding birth work, and creating a better future for families. Some of the items may be advanced, but if you come with an open mind and open heart, we think you will LOVE it!
Q: My state law doesn’t allow me to do some of what you are leading in the Skillz & Drillz, should I still come?
We believe that a skill is never wasted. While you might not use all of the skills you learn today, you may very well use them in the future, if regulations change or you move. Also, the Skillz & Drillz stations are by choice, so you can choose which hands-on training is right for you exactly where you are in your education and practice journey.
