Believe in Us and Our Mission?  Pay any amount more than $500.00 to cover certification for doulas who cannot afford to pay the full cost.

If you believe in the power of doulas to make a difference, and in our mission of representation and focus on doula development, we thank you for sharing your money with us.  We will treat your funds with care and 100% of them will go to pay for a doula’s certification program costs.
