Postpartum Doula Training - The Workshop
What is your cancellation policy?
We do not offer refunds. Cancelling 45 days prior to start date: 100% of tuition returned as a credit on our studio, minus $50 administration fee. No credit for cancellations made within 45 days of the start of training. No exceptions. Thank you for your understanding.
What if I'm called to a birth, or am sick?
We are unable to offer make up classes or credits for missed time regardless of reason. Our trainings are always sold out and we cannot accommodate students from previous trainings who are looking to make up missed time. Thank you for understanding.
I have additional questions, who can I call?
We'd love to chat with you. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 416 406 0116.
How do I register?
You can register and pay online here.
Can I bring my nursing baby?
Breaks will occur in the AM and PM for 15 minutes and about an hour over the lunch hour. You may use these times to meet with your family, to nurse a baby, etc. Quiet babies in arms (usually under 3-4 months old) are welcome to be with you during the workshop, but we ask that you excuse yourself if baby is making noise (happy or otherwise). Childcare is not provided and older babies are not permitted in order to allow for an ideal learning environment for all participants.
How long is the workshop?
Our workshop runs over three days.

You may find it beneficial to read DONA position papers prior to workshop attendance:
