Horizontal Violence and the Future of the Doula Profession: Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That! with Cristen Pascucci

At this unprecedented time within the history of childbirth, the opportunities within the birth professions are limitless. However, horizontal violence- hostile and aggressive behavior among group members within an oppressed group- has handicapped doulas and birth workers for decades and made it difficult for them to organize as a group.

From a business perspective, it is an especially critical moment for the doula profession.

This session takes a look at what horizontal violence is, how each of us perpetuates it, and how we can change this trajectory and move forward together.
