Birth Doula - Course Fees

Calculating your training costs is easy.

Course costs are all inclusive

The cost includes all your training materials, trainer support, and access to the student website. There are no hidden fees, no workshop fees, no examination or certification fees, and no costs for membership or recertification. The cost of shipping will be calculated when you order your course and is dependent on where you live. You can pay by:
  • Visa

  • MasterCard

  • Visa Delta

  • Visa Electron

  • American Express

  • PayPal

Please note, we do not accept checks or bank transfers (except when paid through PayPal). The cost of the Birth Doula training program is US$495 (approximate price conversions below), plus shipping. You will reclaim those costs in your first 1-2 clients - most doulas charge between US$250-$650 for support services.

Courses are available wherever you live. Use the currency converter at the bottom of this page to convert to your own currency using current exchange rates. Approximate conversions are below (the actual amounts will depend on that days currency exchange rate):

Can I pay by installments?

Yes! You can choose to pay for your course in one easy payment or alternatively pay in monthly installments. You will receive all your student manuals once your final payment has been processed but in the meantime will have access to all course materials online. Three monthly installments costs US$170 per month (total of US$510). Six monthly installments cost US$87.50 per month (total of US$525).


Do you have a refund policy?

Yes we do! You can access all student materials through the student website once you have registered for a course. If, after looking at the materials, you decide that this is not quite what you are looking for, we offer a 2 day money back guarantee. Just contact us within 2 days (48 hours) of registering, and your payment will be refunded less a $50 admin fee.

Are there discounts for combined courses or existing students?

Yes there are! Registering for more than one course means significant discounts on your training costs. If you register for one course now, you can always add courses later and receive a student discount.

Do you offer scholarships?

Scholarships are not offered by Childbirth International. If finances are tight, making training difficult, there are several options available to you. You could choose the installment plan, spreading the cost of your training over several months. If you would like to do the Birth Doula and Childbirth Educator courses, you could start with the Birth Doula course and then receive the discounted fee for existing students and upgrade to the Childbirth Educator program later (or any other full training course that is eligible for certification offered by Childbirth International). You could approach local government and small business organizations for assistance as they often have business start-up programs, or approach community groups like your local church. Another alternative is that you could use the income from your first 1-2 births to pay for your training.

"I loved the whole journey. The whole experience has been one of tremendous growth. The flexibility was wonderful for me... I could take my time and absorb the material. I love how I have new, definitive ideas about birth and my culture. I really enjoyed the message board and will continue to do so. " - Amy, New York
