for doula agency owners + childbirth educators

jessica english


Before I was a birth worker, I spent more than a decade in marketing, public relations and journalism. And even farther back, I grew up in my parents' business. As I immersed myself in the birth world, I realized that most birth workers didn't have the business skillset that I'd developed. So from the beginning of my birth career, I've been speaking and teaching on business topics. I started coaching doula agency owners a few years after I founded Birth Kalamazoo, Michigan's first and longest-standing doula agency. The coaching for childbirth educators has come together because I think as a group we're a little neglected in the mentoring world — CBEs need business skills too. I love sharing what I've learned, and encouraging others on this journey. We're are stronger together.
