Rina offers a three-day birth doula workshop that qualifies as two steps toward certification through DONA International: the childbirth education requirement and the doula training. The fee for the workshop is $575, or $500 if payment is received 30 days in advance of the start date. Workshops run for three days from 9am to 6:30pm on each day.
