Brood’s original and accessible guides and workbooks

We have developed workbooks, toolkits, and guides — covering a variety of (often stigmatized) topics. Crafted for new parents, their communities, care workers, and practicing healthcare professionals looking to learn and lead. They were developed by doulas and educators, and peer-reviewed by a Clinical Advisory Board made up of doctors, therapists, midwives, nurses, and people with lived experience.
