Jai Olive Mentorship

Jai Olive is about moving doula mentorship beyond an individual providing knowledge and experience, to emphasizing cultivating and nurturing a community of trust that allows for a deeper impact on birthing outcomes and doula retention. We achieve this through listening with empathy and shared experiences, developing insight through reflection, and empowering doulas to achieve personal goals. Each mentor/mentee relationship begins with a mutual agreement that states expectations, values, and respect. Mentorship includes topics such as business and career development, evidence-based knowledge and skills, cultural and resource exchange, networking, and navigating and adjusting to doula-ing as a full-time or part-time employee. Jai Olive is only offering mentoring through the Title V and Healthy Start & Empowerment doula programs.
