This official Birth Arts International Doula Certification Workshop will challenge, encourage, equip, and inspire you with knowledge and hands-on skills to support growing families. After completing the workshop you may continue working toward certification with Birth Arts International online at no additional cost. Most of my workshops are taught in an intensive style and are offered for birth doula or postpartum doula certification paths.
If you are seeking a postpartum doula training in an area that I am already offering a birth doula training let me know and with enough interest, I may be able to offer one during the time that I am in the area.

- Autonomy to operate your doula business the way you want.
- New content is always being added to the E-learning classroom.
- Flexible schedule, 2 years is given to complete the program after the workshop but extensions are available because we know that “life” happens.
Class Cancellation: 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 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?
$450 covers the in-person workshop intensive for either birth or postpartum. This also includes access to the E-Learning classroom, grading, and certification. There are never any re-certification or membership fees. Payments via paypal credit (no interest or payments for 60 days) are available. Please email me directly if you would like to use that option.
When do I need to pay?
As soon as possible. Paying sooner helps the trainer know what size classroom space to reserve as well as making travel arrangements. To provide attention to our students we limit the number of attendees so registering early guarantees a spot in the workshop.
Am I a doula after the weekend?
You will leave the workshop ready to provide doula support, and many of your assignments toward certification will be completed during the workshop. At this point, you may charge your doula clients and be able to serve families in home, hospital, and birth centers 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 training available. BAI 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 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. Learn why I chose BAI.
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
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 for a different training with Heathir Brown at a future training date. These funds do not expire and there is no fee for rescheduling. Contact Me if you have any questions 541-870-5089
