I am certified by DONA to teach Birth Doula Workshops. The Birth Doula workshop is the first step you take toward becoming a DONA certified birth doula.
The workshop is either:
Two 8 hour days, held on a Saturday and Sunday. The workshop begins at 9:00 am and runs until 6:00 pm. The cost for the 2 days is $400.00.
Or three days with a Childbirth Preparation Class for Doulas held on the Friday before the workshop. The Childbirth Preparation Class for Doulas runs from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. The cost for the 3 days is $475.00

There are rest breaks throughout the day, and I provide healthy snacks and beverages. We usually step out for a one hour lunch break.
