Shanna will be taking her Global Birth Community, Full Care International Doula training to Kyrgyzstan in mid-October 2021! She will be joined by another trainer from Colorado, as well as three trainers in country. Shanna has created and expanded her doula curriculum to serve the international community. This will be the first training of it’s kind in this country! Along with the 5 day, 40 hrs training, there will also be in-country oversight of the new doulas. The hope is to then appeal to the local hospitals to allow doulas in for a one year study to show the effectiveness of doula support. Currently no one is allowed in with the birthing mom (due to COVID, normally only one person usually the husband or the women labors alone), this study hopes to open the doors to birth support to women in this country. The whole training will also be interpretimg and translated into the local language. The curriculum will also be customized to their culture. This coutry has a very Muslim country and so we are making sure that everything taught is culturally appropriate!

Shanna is partnering with a local in-county nonprofit called CDI Crosslink Development International (  They had reached out to see about bringing Doula training to their women. CDI has been offering Bradley Classes for the last 6 years, and wanted to add doulas locally. This org will oversee the newly trainied doulas after this training!

"Currently, no one is allowed in with the birthing mom and the local culture doesn't allow women to question what is being done to her." -KM (living in KG) This is why this training is so important. We believe that having professionaly trained support could also reduce maternal and infant mortality in KG.

This training has been in the works since spring 2020! Josh will be going with Shanna as she travels across the world. This will be a 12 day trip for the two of them, since they need to arrive in time to get used to the time change and then the added days of traveling, plus the Monday-Friday training days. This trip will be a big expense, but for such an amazing cause as it will be training doulas there for the first time! They hope to have 15-20 students!!!
