About Tiered Pricing

In an effort to make the online Postpartum Doula Trainings as accessible to as many folks as possible, while balancing my own finances, there are 3 different price options. When registering, select the one that best matches your situation. No proof of income or verification is necessary.

This is the honor system, rooted in the values of community care. I trust that most aspiring doulas are trying to do the right thing, and this includes honoring my time and value as a facilitator, while also honoring their financial capacity.

Standard Rate: Making enough money to pay the bills, and beyond.

Community Rate: Experiencing financial hardship (ex: unemployment or low wages; on disability or other social service programs.)

Equity Rate: For BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ folks who are also experiencing financial hardship or other social determinants of health.

*Pricing for in-person trainings will vary.


If you cancel your registration for any virtual Doula Training more than one month prior to the workshop, you will receive a refund minus a 20% non-refundable deposit.

There will be no refunds issued within one month of the start of the workshop. After that you may apply your registration to another virtual Postpartum Doula Training within one year for a $75 transfer fee.

Students registered for the course will not receive refunds for any missed sections of the course and certificates cannot be issued for partial attendance.

Refund policies may vary for in-person trainings as those are often a collaboration between myself and another organization. Be sure to read the refund policy of the specific training you are signing up for!
