Birth Arts International, founded by Demetria Clark, is one of the most well-known and respected doula certification programs out there. BAI trains birth doulas, postpartum doulas, midwife assistants, and monitrices. This training will be the first step towards certification as a birth doula through BAI and is sure to be a wonderful time! More information about Birth Arts International can be found at:

Erika Urban, CPM, LM, CD is the Midwest doula trainer for BAI. She has been a doula since 2005 and has a deep respect for the birthing process. 

There are no prerequisites for this training! Come with an open heart and mind and gain the confidence and skill to support a woman through the birth of her child. Saturday and Sunday will be long and busy days as we will work together from 9am-5pm on both days. Pack a lunch and snacks as we will work while we eat! 

The cost for training is $400 when paid 30 days in advance. The cost of the workshop is $425 if paid less than 30 days before the workshop. Payment in advance can be through paypal or check. You will have access to the online course space after your workshop attendance. This course space has all of your reading and class materials, but should you desire to purchase a workbook in addition, those will be available for purchase for $20.

Please bring to class: a water bottle, a sack lunch (we do have a full kitchen available, and any doula tools you want to learn more about. I will have available yoga balls, peanut balls, rebozos, etc.

Note: Tiny and non-mobile babies are welcome for ease of nursing, but I ask that bigger and mobile children stay home as they can be a distraction to the class and it is going to be BUSY. There are also plenty of private locations in the birth center to allow for breast pump use and a fridge where milk can be stored.
