We are excited about being about to provide you with a virtual workshop in light of our current COVID-19 situation. Your health and safety is the most important thing to us while ensuring you receive the best possible information and support!
To help make the process as easy as possible for our new doulas, Bini Birth also offers a FREE doula peer review meeting every month for all doulas trained through us. Peer reviews are great opportunities for continued mentorship, assistance with certification process, networking, and creating a support system with like-minded individuals.

We will also provide you with certification support after the training.
The training costs $550 per participant.
It includes a DONA International manual, resources and hand-outs.
