Racism in Canadian Doula Education

In this episode, get ready to get uncomfortable. I am discussing the dangerous trend of performative allyship and marketing and how it is showing up in Canadian doula training organizations. 

In this week’s episode discover more about:

  • Who is King Yaa + why their work important
  • Why I’m not certified
  • How financial support is weaponized by white-led organizations against BIPOC students
  • How to question and not cancel to support actual change
