About Birth Arts International

Birth Arts International was originally founded in 2000 by Demetria Clark as the Green Mountain Doula Guild. Since then the organization has expanded and grown into Birth Arts International. We have gone from a regional body to one that is working internationally, offering extensive doula, postpartum doula, childbirth educator, midwifery assistant and advanced doula trainings.

Birth Arts International has trained over 6000 birthworkers worldwide, and that number continues to grow year after year.
