Those wishing to attend my DONA approved birth doula workshop must register for the workshop below as well as a childbirth education (CBE) course. You will be brought back to this page when you finish registering for the birth doula workshop.

However, you will need to provide proof that you attended the course, preferrably an indepent class NOT taught in a hospital. You must present your completed DONA Childbirth Class Observation Form in order to attend the birth doula training. You will also need to complete your workshop registration here.

DONA Approved Birth Doula Workshop

Refund Policy
Cancellations made at least two weeks prior to the start of the workshop will be granted a refund, minus a $100 deposit and any paypal fees. Cancellations made within two weeks of the workshop are not eligible for a refund. In cases of family emergencies and/or sudden illness, attendees may be able to transfer credit to a later workshop date, plus a $50 administrative fee. These transfers are subject to space availability and will be negotiated on a case-by-case basis.

Nursing mothers
As much as I love being around babies, this class is not a good class to bring your nursing child. The moms that have paid for childcare are hoping to not be distracted by these cute and sweet little ones. Their cuteness is also a ditraction from your learning. So, if you are a nursing mother, you may have someone bring your happy baby to you during breaks. You may also pump if you need to as well.

Doula Training Classes Part II - Childbirth Education

Students must attent a childbirth education (CBE) course BEFORE attending the workshop. It is strongly recommneded that you take the weekend madness course (two day course). While this makes for a long weekend, it will help you in numerous ways.

One, you will get to see how little many expecting mothers know about the childbirth process. You will get to see how their newly gained knowledge empowers them and makes them feel much more comfortable facing childbirth. Two, meeting expecting families can help you grow your business! If you are still daunted by the long weekend, remember this: childbirth itself can be very long.

After signing up for the CBE course, you will need to complete your registration by providing contact information. You will be taken directly to the page, but if you accidentally navigate away from it, you can finish your registration here.

Do NOT register for both courses.
