FLOCK YEAH! AUSTIN 2019, brought to you by


Join us in Austin, Texas on February 23-24, 2019 for an incredible weekend of learning, connection, recharging, and transformation with Gena Garcia-Kirby, Lesley Everest (of MotherWit Doula Care), and two special guests! Learn from some of the most incredible doula trainers out there, grow your doula network, and fire up your passion for this work during this two-day conference/retreat at the beautiful W Hotel.

WARNING! FLOCK YEAH! mini birth conferences are FUN, INFORMAL and IRREVERENT. Most folks expect birth workshops to be about increasing skills to “do” more stuff. This is about learning to REALLY understand the needs of the birthing family and BE an effective companion.

Flock Yeah! will be a gathering unlike any other birthy event you have attended. There may be “mild” swearing and loads of laughing. There WILL be transformation. If you are okay with all of this then sign up right away!

Learn ways to release self-limiting beliefs and learn how what you really ARE is more important than what you DO. If you are down and OPEN to have your world rocked and your mind blown, COME TO THIS WORKSHOP. If you are down to have your hair blown back and your ideals rocked then by all means please come.


Grab one of the 5 early bird spots before they’re gone and save!

Payment plans available for those who wish to pay in multiple installments.

Amazing gift bags provided to all attendees!

VIP tickets include extra goodies and an invite to an exclusive pre-conference cocktail party with our amazing speakers on Friday night (2/22).

Three (3) full scholarships available for doulas of color. Two (two) partial needs-based scholarships also available.

There are no refunds for tickets, but tickets are fully transferable. You are welcome to sell your ticket to someone else if you find yourself unable to attend.

We know that many of you are hesitant to buy your tickets ahead of time because you are worried about missing it for a birth. SO…WE ARE AMMENDING OUR NO REFUND POLICY just for you.

Buy your ticket for FlockYeah! Austin and get ready for a fantastic weekend of learning. BUT KNOW THAT, if you get called to a birth last minute, we’ve got you covered.

You’ll get free admission to my online mentoring course, “The Doula’s Doula” along with special videos of Lesley and Hermine so you can learn as much as you can from them, as well.

IN ADDITION…you will also be able to attend any future FlockYeah! for an extremely discounted price of $100.

Why Flock Yeah! from Progressive Parenting Network on Vimeo.

On Gena:
“Having had the pleasure of experiencing Gena Kirby as an instructor several times, I have learned that her superpower is to hit people square in the heart center with inspiration. You would expect a transformational wisdom ninja to maintain an etheric loftiness. However, what makes Gena’s message so accessible is her wicked humor, her delightful potty mouth, her raw emotions, and her commitment to loving community.”

On Lesley:
“The MotherWit doula training was a life-changing experience for me. Lesley’s soul-deep wisdom, extensive practical experience, and humor are the cornerstones of her teaching, and students find themselves not just taking a course, but ultimately, part of a rich, vibrant community of birth workers.”

On Flock Yeah!:
“What exactly is FLOCK YEAH!? It is about the nourishment of the birth worker soul. This will change how you move forward in your work. If you are attached to curricula and detailed outlines, come anyway. If you have an open heart and a sense of humor, an adventurous spirit, and a sense that TRANSformational gatherings are often more powerful than INformational gatherings, join us.”

Join us in thanking our amazing sponsors!

With music flowing around every corner, a spirit of independence across every block, an eclectic vibrancy emanating from every direction, and a natural love for the outdoors in the air, to explore Austin is to immerse yourself in the city, with your feet and ears close to the ground.

With a vibrant, bustling downtown with something to see at every corner, intersection and along each sidewalk, a stroll through the 2ND Street, Warehouse and 6th Street Entertainment Districts is the way to roll, just steps from W Austin. If you like walking this way or that, ramble on along the Lady Bird Hike and Bike Trail—the intersection of urban cool and earthly goodness where the casual, laid-back Austin vibe really comes to life, whether you're on two legs or two wheels. The city's year-long comfortable climate means you'll want to ride your bicycle all the time, the most efficient and scenic way to cover all of Austin inside and out with your very own designated lane across most main streets. Austin roads can be challenging with highways and roads merging and changing names, with many one-way downtown streets, so if you must drive, try to make sure someone else is behind the wheel (buses) or handlebars (pedicabs). Otherwise, consult maps in advance and familiarize yourself with the routes you need to take, so you can better estimate driving times and distance.

We recommend that all guests fly into Austin Bergstrom International Airport (AUS) and travel to the hotel by private car service, taxi or airport shuttle. AUS is approximately 8 miles from W Austin with an approximate travel time of 15 to 20 minutes, depending on traffic. There are also Amtrak and Greyhound stations for guests who prefer to stay grounded.

If you are traveling by car, please see driving directions, from the airport or any other location.
