Traditional doula training workshop, with some online flair! 

We get it.  We know that not everyone will learn best without a hands on workshop! There is something to be said about the benefits of watching, and doing specific skills.  Being versatile is our mission and we plan to stand up to our name.  

Although our doula training workshop is not a required part of your doula certification, it is available for those who are willing to travel. This includes workshops in Boise, Idaho and Fort Worth areas only.  (For those who want to sponsor a workshop in your area, please contact us)!

Price for workshop are $450 without certification and $550 with online training and certification.
