Northwest Doula Conference

I had a great time at the NW Doula Conference last week. There was a terrific keynote on trends in the doula profession by Amy Gilliland, author of the blog Doula-ing the Doula; a talk on serving LGBTQ families; and one on marketing in the digital age.

Here are a couple of pictures from it. The one above is from a panel I was on moderated by Penny Simkin about different models of doula compensation. (If you can’t see that one here, click back to the main blog.) The one below is of the “doula speed dating” activity I helped to organize to help doulas meet others they didn’t know before the conference.
