Want to learn how to make your first $10K as a doula? In this bonus training course, Doulas and Dollars, I'll share with you my step-by-step road map for getting your business started, finding your first few doula clients and how to make this passion your full-time income.

This class will be offered along with each Labor Doula Training. However, it may take place a few days after the training so please review the calendar below.


Why becoming a CAPPA certified doula matters:

As one of the first and most comprehensive perinatal organizations in the world, CAPPA is respected for its longevity and its commitment to excellence in birth education.

Being a CAPPA certified birth doula means you have innumerable resources to pull from and a team of doulas and educators you can rely on for support. Take the first step to becoming CAPPA certified with this Labor Doula Training class!


Liz McCreary

There really aren't words. Julianne is simply the best. Feel so grateful she came into our lives. She'll be your champion, confidant, thought partner, cheerleader, coach, comedian, and friend that knows the answer to all of your pregnancy/newborn questions or that knows who will know the answer. Her services are worth every penny.

Chrissy Chard

Julianne is literally THE BEST decision we have ever made. We hired her for the birth of our 3rd child, because we wanted a different experience than the first two. Because of her, we were able to prepare for this birth in a way that allowed us to have the kind of birth experience we wanted. She is compassionate, non-judgmental, incredibly supportive and a wealth of knowledge!

What if I'm not in Northern Colorado?

No problem! I offer both the CAPPA Labor Doula Training and Doulas and Dollars virtually as well as in person. You'll just need access to a computer and space to move around. Contact me for more details about upcoming hybrid classes. Email about upcoming virtual class options

Am I going to get the same quality training?

I have made both courses extremely interactive so whether you're in person or virtual, you will be actively participating with the material, with me and with the other students.

Can I do hybrid training?

Absolutely! If you'd like to participate in person one day and at home the next, that's totally fine! I encourage you to choose the environment you learn best in. No matter where you're training, just make sure you have good snacks.

In order to receive a certificate of completion for your training, you must attend and participate in the entire training. No partial credit will be given.

After registering for a class, if you are no longer able to attend you may move your registration to a future training with the same CAPPA faculty (Julianne Curtis) within 12 months.

No refunds given if cancellations are made 3 weeks or less to the training date. Refunds prior to 3 weeks before class refunded at 90%. If you do not attend a training within 12months, all fees are forfeited.

A $50 transfer fee will be due upon registration of new training.

I understand that this course is only one step in becoming a CAPPA Certified Doula. There are several other steps that must be completed by the student after the training in order to be eligible for certification by CAPPA.
