I took my training with Stefanie in 2011 and since then have welcomed 20+ babies into this world ?? I love being a doula and Stefanie’s training workshop set me out on the path that I’m on now. When I did my training I decided to attend Stefanie’s particular workshop because of the doula business she had built for herself at Discover Birth. I had the choice of attending workshops led by other trainers that were much closer to me… but I was embarking on a new career path and wanted to learn from someone who had experience creating a successful livelihood out of something so special. I am very happy I made that choice, and I am ecstatic that Stefanie now does her training from my studio, creating opportunities for other women looking to embark on new paths.

I just wanted to send a quick note and thank you both again for the workshop. I am still surprised by how ready I feel to be a doula! This path was something I had thought about for over a year and I was never fully confident in my decision until meeting the two of you and the rest of our group, feeling the support of everyone’s positive energy and gaining all the knowledge you both had to share! Stefanie, I wanted to say that the lecture you gave on how to start your own doula business was extremely helpful and eye opening. Not only were you able to give us applicable, real-life information on billing, contracts and networking, but you instilled a confidence in me that I can be responsible for my own income and make what I’m passionate about a sustaining business. Nicole, your warm spirit and anecdotes really opened up the group and your ability to take doula work to so many corners of the earth and different settings allowed me to see that training to be a doula doesn’t always mean one path, but rather, opens many doors and options that I’m excited to explore. You both are an inspiration and I’m so glad I got to learn from you and hope to stay in touch. Thanks again.
I wanted to tell you that I really enjoyed your methods of teaching. You approached the course catering to all styles of learners. I also appreciated the stories you shared and practicality of content. It was a blessing to partake in the course and learn from someone who isn’t just a granola cruncher but also a business professional!
Thank you so much for such an amazing weekend. Your wisdom, authenticity and attentiveness has led to such security and openness in our learning environment. I am coming from this weekend feeling so affirmed and inspired. Thank you for being such a force and great leader.
