Don’t miss this unique opportunity to begin or expand your doula practice and to dive deeply into an inspiring workshop of discovery, personal growth and education. This workshop is for you whether you are beginning your path to becoming a doula, want to learn how to support your partner, friend or family through their birth, are a nurse who would like to enhance your comfort skills or are a community doula looking to expand your labor support skills. Our doula workshop brings together people from all backgrounds and experiences to discuss the challenges and opportunities that exist today to ensure everyone has a safe, respectful and gentle birth in any setting. You will leave enriched, connected, ready and part of a new community of amazing people!
November 2021 Training will be available in HYBRID format, with both Virtual and In-Person spots available. "Virtual" or "In-Person" will be labeled in the workshop booking. Please be sure to register for your preferred format. November 15 & 16, will be fully virtual for all registrants. November 17 & 18 will be in-person (for 8 people who choose in-person) and virtual (for those that choose fully virtual).
In-Person will take place in Westwood, New Jersey. Limited to 8 spaces. All in-person attendees must provide proof of vaccination or negative PCR 3 days or less prior to the start of training.
This training will NOT be recorded. Due to DONA's requirements and the participatory nature of the doula training, if you miss more than 10 minutes of any section, you can make that session up in the next training. We will not be able to issue a certificate if you miss more than 10 minutes of any section, until you make it up in the next training. Thank you for understanding.

Cancellations made 3 or more days in advance will receive a full credit for a rescheduled date with this provider
The school highly recommend that students schedule any prenatal classes or workshops to end by the time they are 36 weeks pregnant. If they schedule class for after they begin their 36th week, they run the risk of having their baby and missing their class without a refund. In the event that they go into labor before 36 weeks, they may apply 90% of the class cost to another class (i.e.: CPR) or service (i.e.: postpartum doula care).
In the special circumstances of a mother-to-be being placed on bed rest or delivering before 36 weeks before the beginning of a class series, they may apply 90% of the class fee to another class or service at Birth Day Presence. If bed rest or delivery happens while they are in the middle of a series (and they would have completed their classes before they began their 36th week), they may apply the fees from the unused portion of the class toward another class or service at Birth Day Presence.
Birth Day Presence is not responsible for providing make-ups or issuing any credit for classes missed as a result of scheduling conflicts, vacations, illness, emergencies, or other circumstances beyond our control.
