Class Cancelation: At times, it becomes necessary to cancel a class due to low attendance. Therefore, if you are planning to attend a class, it is recommended that you register and pay $100 deposit as soon as possible. If it becomes necessary for the instructor to cancel a class, full refunds will be given to all registrants.
How Much does it cost? $550 ( $450 early bird price) covers the 2 day in person workshop, the E-Learning classroom, grading, and certification. There are never any re-certification or membership fees.
Am I a doula after the weekend? You will leave the workshop ready to provide labor support, and many of your assignments toward certification will be completed during the workshop. At this point you may charge for attending births but you will need to complete the assignments in BAI online classroom in order to become certified.
Why Birth Arts International? BAI trainings are the most in depth doula trainings available. We dig below the surface of being a doula and help build you up and deepen your understanding of birth as well as strengthen your confidence in the birth process. We also support you in having a strong base to begin your business. BAI curriculum and assignments are smart in that you will be creating tools for your business such as brochures and business plans. BAI also believes in supporting and nurturing our doulas and is the only organization that you can call and have the Global Director answer the phone to speak directly to you.
Can I bring my children? Nursing babies are welcome but I suggest that you have someone to care for your infant between feedings so that you can get the most from the workshop. It is very interactive and I wouldn’t want you to miss out on the learning opportunity!
What if I am coming from another organization? We welcome you and recognize that you have already put a lot of hard work into your path as a doula. We will work with you on an individual basis after the workshop to take as much of your previous qualifications into consideration toward certifying with Birth Arts International
When do I need to pay? Payment of at least $100 needs to be made to hold your spot and claim the early bird special. Full tuition must be paid in full at least 10 days before the the class. Failure to pay in full 10 days prior to workshop may result in a loss of your spot if there is a waiting list.
Do you give refunds? I understand that life happens and plans change. While I do not offer a monetary refund. You are welcome to reschedule to a different training with Heathir Brown at a future training date. These funds do not expire and there is no fee for rescheduling.
