Mommy Monitor is working in partnership with Birth Mark ( a Toronto based not-for-profit organization ) to offer free doula services to black mothers/parents in Ontario. If you are interested in recieving this service, contact us at info.mommymonitor.ca.
Our Birth Justice workshops are grounded in the understanding that the core component of reproductive justice is birthing rights, and these rights only exist when all women/parents/parents to be are empowered preconception, during pregnancy, labor childbirth and postpartum to make healthy informed decisions.
We offer free workshops throughout Toronto for various organizations and we also provide workshops for organizations that invite us. Workshops are 2 hours in length, and include education on different topics, opportunities to ask questions and a discussion period. We offer 13 different workshops (workshops for clinicians is also offered) which all focus on various issues and common questions that parents may have.
We offer training for our Maternal mentor program, which supports mothers/parents as peer counselors, providing companionship, mentorship, social support, and patient navigation. The training includes a two day in person class, an online course and registration into the MM system (this includes a police check and registration). Maternal mentors will be used through the app and will also be available through our database for parents to access. Program will begin in the new year.
We conduct outreach throughout the GTA and have facilitators available to provide workshops on general information about Mommy Monitor and our activities.
The Art therapy workshop involves the use of art to express and share the experiences that parents/mothers have had during their birth journey. The workshop is 2 hours in length and is facilitated by an expert in the field.
