Announcing the “When Push Comes to Shove” Scholarship Program! This is your opportunity to enrol in our globally acclaimed doula course at half the cost. Join our extraordinary community where women unite in sisterhood, sharing knowledge and offering mutual support every day of the year. By empowering women in their pregnancy and birth choices, we foster an environment of growth and understanding.

Applicants should be dedicated to ongoing personal and spiritual growth to excel as doulas or childbirth companions.
