While this training does not guarantee employment with Desert Birth & Wellness, Coachella Valley Doulas or San Bernardino & Riverside County Family Doulas, it does meet the minimum qualifications to start a mentorship with them if both parties believe it’s a good fit. After successful completion of the mentorship program the new doula may decide to become an independent contractor with one or more of the above companies. If you are planning on attending both the birth & postpartum trainings please email us for a separate invoice. There will be a $50 discount if both workshops are booked together.
