We are planning to set up a $25 trial course ($20 for Canada or nearby countries). The trial course is so you can try before you buy. You will receive a coupon for $25 off the course you want to enroll in if you choose this trial course option. We think this is a wonderful way for you to get use to our Eliademy classroom. This was originally our Doula Boot camp; so it will be like that; but improved with option to see our new self-pace course and fast-track examples. Plus, postpartum example course. We will add in new bereavement example later.
OK, I know we are kind of cannot make up our minds on pricing. I found another doula program that I want to model our pricing and registration and first moments of our course for you in a better format. So, the first part is pricing structure.
Instead of having sales here and there; we won't be doing them as much as we feel that $400 for birth or $400 for postpartum is a fair price. Let's just price them the same. The birth course can also add on rebozo for $40 since we get them from Mexico; we think the $440 for course and rebozo is a fair deal. This includes shipping/and we eat the Square fees. So, you don't have to worry about that part! And if we have a "sale" it will be a short weekend and rare moment--so do look for those on occasion; but they will not be as often. If you subscribe to our newsletter, then you will be informed of those rare moments!
If you don't want to pay all at one time we will offer the $50 x 12 months offer payment plan. You will be paying more this way; but you can pay off the course over time for those with a lower budget or income. We also offer a special incentive if you can both pay off and FINISH the course by 6 month time frame then your $50 x6 = $300 for the course. So, this is a great way to finish fast. Another option we may offer is if you want to finish paying off quicker after 6 months -- let's say you are 8 months along on payments -- we may offer a lower cost to finish off payment plan. So, we will be offering incentives for you! So, those who paid $400 and finish in 6 months can get a 'rebate' offer -- basically a coupon of $100 off their next course. So, even more incentives to finish faster. We may consider a finish in 7 months coupon offer as well.
If you are in the fast-track course, we will be offering a lower cost of $325 for early bird and $400 if you want add-on mentorship. This also includes rebozo shawl.
Postpartum courses will generally not include a rebozo; but you may opt-in to purchase a rebozo at $40 as well.
OH, registration process will include a register form on the website plus pay on website; info about a 30-minute to one hour free mentorship with your mentor to get you started on the course; then you order your books and start the course! If you have any questions; please let us know. We will be setting up things soon; so it will be easier for you to register/pay and get started on a course. Thank you!
Please see next post about a trial doula course; we hope to start offering; it will cost something; but you will get a coupon off the course you wish to take!
Here's a link to the novena:
We ask first of all you pray for our apostolate; guide us Mary in order to find new students that will take our courses and be well trained doulas. 2nd of all guide us in our new Radio Blog Talk St. Gianna Hour coming soon in May that we may have an audience to listen in and enjoy hearing the show. Third, we want to reach more mothers who need a Catholic influence in their pregnancies; we pray to offer our Childbirth classes online to more moms who would like to take this online course: St. Gianna Childbirth Prep and St. Anne Breastfeeding course. Also, we hope to offer a lot more 'free' things to mothers on this site. So, we pray for all pregnant and postpartum mothers to be helped in their needs.
My husband this morning came across this video from Church Militant -- here is the link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y0HeNhGmrVE
So, anyway, what do you think? I also think it is a good idea to start going to the source for news instead of just Facebook. So, that is why we are starting this blog on our website. We have had enough of censorship. I even got in Facebook jail one day without any explanation. Now, I think I think I was being censored by Facebook for posting about Catholic Doula program in various groups. This is nonsense.
Another thing we are starting up is our BlogTalk Radio Show. We will interview Dave Palmer next month as our first Interview. The thing I like about this interview is you are going to get real radio quality as I am going to his radio station to do the interview! I hope to broadcast this one live so stay tuned and we will post time/day on another posting.
Please share our blog with your friends.
