Do you want to become both a birth and postpartum doula?

Invest in our Doula Business Builder Deluxe Training Package and save!

This comprehensive training package is substantially discounted and includes DONA International Birth and Postpartum Doula Workshops, all pre-requisite classes, and training in how to put it all together into a life-changing, successful doula business. Your choice of training dates through June 2021. Payment plans available.


A full refund minus a $75 cancellation fee will be provided if requested one month or more prior to the first day of the scheduled training. Once we are within one calendar month of the training start date, no refunds will be issued (e.g., October 1st for a training beginning November 1st). Most refunds will be processed within 30 days of a request, provided we are not hit with an unusually high number of cancellations at one time.

PLEASE NOTE: The End-of-Life Doula Training is non-refundable. Once you invest in this training, you will be given access to the online modules to be completed in your own time frame.

Refunds on the Doula Business Builder Deluxe Package

If you purchase this package and change your mind about completing the package after attending only a portion of the trainings, your refund will equal the total amount paid minus the full cost of each component you did complete or receive access to, and the $75 cancellation fee. Please note that in cases where you registered for a class and did not provide one month notice of cancellation, you are not eligible for a refund for that portion of the package. If you are unable to complete all the trainings within the current calendar year (by the end of 2021), then your fees are forfeited.

Transfer/Make-Up Policy

Should you need to transfer your registration to another training date, you may do so without penalty up until one calendar month before the training start date. If notice of a need to transfer is given in less than one calendar month, we cannot guarantee you a spot in a future training but will accommodate you IF a future training is under-enrolled for a $75 transfer fee. In this case, you may receive very short notice of a make-up opportunity and should plan accordingly. Basically, you would be stepping in to fill a spot created by another participant’s last-minute cancellation. Illness, family emergencies or last-minute babysitting challenges, and so on, are not our responsibility but we will make every reasonable effort to accommodate your situation. Bottom line: the more advance notice you can give us of a conflict, the more likely it is that we can fill your spot and, consequently be flexible about the make-up.

Transfers requested under the one-month time frame will only be granted for the same type of training as the original enrollment (e.g., you cannot switch enrollment in a birth doula workshop to an end-of-life doula workshop if you are making this request within one month of the workshop start date).

Attendance Policy

In order to provide you with proof of having completed a workshop, you will need to attend the workshop in its entirety. Should you become ill or otherwise unable to complete a training you have started, the transfer/make-up policy above will apply.
