COURSES: BIRTH DOULA

COURSE FEES

Calculating your training costs is easy. All Childbirth International costs are all inclusive. You will not be asked to pay additional fees to certify or recertify.

Childbirth International training costs include 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. 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$495.00 , plus shipping. You will reclaim those costs in your first 1-2 clients - most doulas charge between US$250-$650 for support services.

Monthly Installments

No problem! You can choose to pay for your course in one easy payment or in 3 or 6 monthly installments. You will receive all your student manuals once your final payment has been processed but in the meantime you will have access to all course materials online.

Refunds

No problem! 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 in writing within 2 days (48 hours) of registering, and your payment will be refunded less a $50 administration fee.

Discounts

Of course! Registering for more than one course means significant discounts on your training costs. Discounts of up to 25% are available depending on how many courses you purchase at once. If you register for one course now, you can always add courses later and receive a student discount. If you are an existing student you can order any additional course with a 15% discount.

Scholarships and Grants

We do not offer scholarships and do not accept Pell, MyCAA or other government grants. 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. We will accept payments from organizations provided they are paid by credit card.

"I really enjoyed the communication skills learning and having access to and reading the forum online to find out about so many different topics and cultures from all over the world and having an encouraging relationship with my trainer. She has a really warm way of expressing her self and encouraging me with out avoiding what needs to be said. " Laura, Tasmania, Australia
