At Uzazi Village, we offer a variety of training opportunities such as perinatal doula training,
a lactation consultant program, and academic internships.


Perinatal Doula Training

This 8-day training course includes 4 certifications and 64 hours of continuing education credits in areas such as breastfeeding, contraception, birth, and postpartum.


Lactation Consultant Mentorship Program

The purpose of this program is to increase the number of Lactation Consultants of Color serving our community and increase accessibility to becoming a certified consultant.


Student Midwife Internship

Uzazi Village is committed to solving health inequities through the restoration of the Black midwife.  Our community-based midwives have long been missing from the healthcare landscape. 

Uzazi Village supports a midwife candidate via our clinical internship that assists candidates in meeting requirements for the NARM exam.  Selected candidates will work alongside our staff midwife to care for our clients in the Ida Mae Clinic.

Our application process is closed at this time, but please check back at another time


Uzazi Village Internships

Our semester-long internship opportunities are community health-focused. Interns assist with support groups, classes, programs, lactation clients, and research projects.
