About Me

My name is Robin.

I know how overwhelming it can feel not knowing the next step in becoming a doula.

I've trained thousands of doulas and attended over 1,300 births in hospitals, birth centers, and home births. Through these experiences, I've learned the many ways that birth can happen and what it takes to be the right doula at the right time.

If you are considering being a doula - I can help you learn everything you need to know to build a sustainable doula practice with my online doula training and the support I provide after the course is done.

But What About ...

Doula training is an investment in your future. I strive to keep prices down and costs low while still delivering a high-quality course. Yes, it is an investment, but I offer flexible payment plans starting at $199.

In class, we will cover effective techniques to help you find clients. You’ll also receive a lifetime membership to Meet Your Doula, a doula listing site that will serve as your first website to attract clients.

Many doulas manage to work full-time while also practicing as doulas, and some take this training to transition into full-time doula work. It’s entirely possible to build a doula business that meets your financial needs. You have control over how many clients you take on and how much you charge per client.

You will receive a certificate of completion right after the training, which means you’re ready to start working and earning money as a doula immediately. To become officially certified with DONA International, you need to attend at least three births and complete some paperwork. This hands-on experience is essential for putting your training into practice. The alumni group and I are available to help you navigate through this certification process.

Attendees who are nursing are welcome to do so during the training. However, I recommend arranging childcare ahead of time. You’ll get more out of the training sessions if you can devote your full attention to the material. Some parts of the training are hands-on and require your participation for completion. I’m happy to provide you with the timing of these sections in advance.
