First, Childbirth International offers a payment installment plan. You
can choose to pay for your training over several months to make it more
affordable. You will have immediate access to all the course materials
through the student website, and your written training materials will be
sent to you as soon as the final installment is made. If you decide to
pay the balance early, you can do so at any time to receive your written
materials straight away. Monthly installments are only an option for single course purchases. If you want to purchase more than one course at a time they must be paid in one payment.
If the installments are out of your reach financially,
consider starting with two clients and using the income from that to
finance your training. You could offer the clients a reduced fee,
letting them know that working with them is going to help you towards
gaining your certification.
Finally, consider how much you could save each week to
work towards the cost of training. In just over nine months (the length
of a pregnancy!), saving US$10 a week would provide you with the funds
for training as a Birth or Postpartum Doula. With the added bonus of not
incurring credit card debt!
