With all that we give, do and support for our SBD credentialed doulas,

what more could we give?


Because, the spaces where birth & bereavement meet aren’t fleeting, but are an exponential series of moments that make up our story and ultimately, our legacy.

Excel as a leader in the birth & bereavement paradigm shift
that stillbirthday literally created.


Joining the SBD Registry

The Registry has resources to help you succeed, including:

  • Identifying the steppes of birth and of bereavement;
  • A Registry Support Team to provide individualized assistance;
  • Chasm Ambassador mentorship to support the growth of leadership teams; and

The Registry is NOT an individual registration for our doula program.  It is more.
