You have completed your doula training. They provided you with wonderful information and beautiful stories of birth, but now what? What about interviews, prenatals, and doula burnout?

(After our first meeting)"Thank you for yesterday. That was EXACTLY what I needed! I'll feel 100% confident going to my next consult. I can't tell you how helpful this mentor program is for me. SO glad I got in when I did, perfect timing."
(After the last meeting) "It exceeded my expectations. I have grown so much in this mentorship and will miss it greatly. My business has increased and I've added several more services as options for my clients." ~Kim
"I cannot thank you enough for the confidence you have instilled in me. You made me realize that I had the potential for success within me the whole time. You just helped bring it out. This class should be mandatory for any new doula in the area who has just finished their doula training. When I left my training I didn't feel prepared to walk out into the world and call myself a doula. After my time with you, I will say it loud and proud!" ~Francesca
