Easter Giveaway and non-certified "doula" route for moms! We apologize for not posting on this blog for awhile - busy me! Today is my patron saint - St. Julie Billiart - she was a French nun! (Read about her here) Our Easter Giveaway is the following items: A book Mission to Motherhood, either a wrap or homemade rebozo (I have some fabric - so I may make a rebozo), Mother's tea, a chapel veil from Regina Caeli Veils (Etsy shop)! So, go to the front page of our website and enter the giveaway on the form or the drop-pop-up form (looks like a donut!) Non-Certification route We have a lot of inquiries sometimes of mothers or others who are interested in the doula course, but perhaps do not have time for all the certification requirements and would like to learn more about birth and doula work. So, we thought we could offer a simpler program - starting now as of April 8, 2019, if someone wants to work through the course and not worry about all the assignments or certification requirements for birth doula (for now- we may offer postpartum option soon) - we will let them take the self-pace course and we will take $100 off our normal pricing (see enrollment page), so if someone (Teens, Mothers, birth workers, etc.) is interested in learning about doulas and not interested in "certification" - please contact us via email and we will be glad to invoice you the difference in pricing for the course. We will also offer payment plan for any non-certification students as well. For now the only way to do the non-certification route is to contact us direct.Thanks for understanding! Homeschooling teens may want this non-certification route option - we had thought about creating a separate program - but we are so busy - so this is the best option we can offer for now is to offer a non-certification route. If a teen wants to do the fast-track - we also have a lower cost option for them too. *Note if anyone wants to come back and certify later - they will have to pay the $100 fee and make sure they do all the required certification work and quizzes or exams if they missed any of those. Thank you.
