I began my journey into birth work as a Childbirth Educator. I had been teaching for nearly 7 years when I decided to become a doula. I had been to a doula workshop years prior with my birth education certifying organization, but never certified. After attending a few births as a doula, I decided that I should seek to be certified. I will admit that I was looking for a quick, easy, and inexpensive course.
New Beginnings *was* inexpensive, but It wasn’t quite quick and easy. Even with my birth experience, I found the course to be challenging, thorough, and very informative. It took me around 9 months of work to complete. Rachel and Brent are actively working to make this program better all the time. They are very responsive to questions and suggestions and in spite of this being a correspondence course, you will never feel alone or abandoned to figure things out on your own. I cannot recommend the program highly enough.
