About Sonia Collins & Nancy Cowans

Many years ago we boldly imagined creating an organization that would support both birth workers and families in our local community through doula support and training. Our dream of Sokana Collective is here, an organization that provides comprehensive Doula support and training while removing barriers to access! We have a fee for service but if you cannot pay, we will still support you.

“Being a member of the AUX allows us to connect and align with fellow visionaries who also have big ideas and services that will nourish and transform our community.”
