What is the point of creating a doula organization if our trainings are inaccessible to those who need them most? We want to increase access to doula trainings for populations who may have barriers. Part of that means we are continually working to be an affirming, inclusive, and actively anti-racist organization. Currently, the following is what we can offer. We are in the process of finding funding to open up even greater access to financial support.
Each training session currently offers 2 students a fully financed spot per subject (birth or postpartum). This covers the full fees owed to the org, covering one year of membership, tuition, and certification fees, amounting to $750 per subject.
Partial support is available to those who need assistance in making their doula dreams a reality. We understand that finances can be a barrier to initiating one’s doula career, and we want to help!
We offer these at each round of Foundations training, partial support not available for Expansion courses:
One 40% off (cost of training is $550 per subject–not eligible to be combined with practicing doula discount)
One 20% off (cost of training is $650 per subject–not to be combined with practicing doula discount)
We now offer a three month payment plan for Foundations Courses and a 2 month plan for Expansions to anyone who wants it! When you go to register for your workshop, you’ll see Pay in Full and Payment Plan Options available.
Obtaining Financial Support
To sign up for financial support, please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put Financial Support Inquiry in the subject line. Our full financial support opportunities are currently only available to BIPOC doulas or aspiring doulas, as our way of actively addressing the disproportionate health outcomes in the Black and Indigenous communities, specifically during the childbearing year. To receive partial financial support, we ask you to consider giving us some insight into your financial barriers, as much or little as you feel comfortable disclosing. Once you hear from us, we will send you a coupon code to enter into the registration system here on the website.
Once we receive your inquiry, we will be in touch as soon as possible. If you do not hear from us within 1 week, feel free to reach out again.
