Is it study at my own pace? Yes - you can start at anytime - Thinkific website. However, our special deal of $200 savings is for limited time only.
What support do you offer as I start the launch of my business? There are 2 areas in the modules that talk about business start-up - if you need more support - we would be glad to offer mentorship at $50 an hour rate to get you going or we can break it down to $25 for 30 minutes.
Why this organization and not another, or a bigger one? 1. Magnificat Childbirth maybe "small" but our goals are very similar to big ones - to get you the best evidence based education possible. 2. Big organizations also mean extra hidden fees and higher costs - we have no hidden fees and our cost is low. 3. You can finish as quick as you like and 8 modules full of great information! 4. We are one of the only totally pro-life childbirth educator programs out there - so if you want to align with pro-life ideas - then take our class!
Where do I start if I know nothing about the birth world? This is a good starting point - you don't have to have any previous knowledge - however, if starting from scratch - we suggest making a notebook of terms that you are learning and if you need extra mentorship - we would be glad to help you with that (as stated above.) You can also learn more at www.catholicdoula.com if you are looking for some general information.
Are all your programs online? Do you offer in-person? Yes, currently we only teach online. However, I am open to a workshop in the near future - possibly when most of this pandemic stuff has gone away (like in a year or two) - then the workshops would be located in mid-west area like Oklahoma, Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, South Dakota or Missouri most likely. So, we are open to workshops - it just might be another year or two before we could offer that.
What makes online programs better? Well, you get to go at your own pace and you do have to do skills - so there is skills you do have to learn and turn in skills sheets.
Do you offer payment plans? Yes, - right now we are offering pay $152 down through Thinkific and the other half $152 can be paid via PayPal within 30 days of enrollment - if you need a lower payment plan options - we can work that out if you email instructor at the contact page. This is a special deal of $304 for limited time (paypal fee included) - and if someone wants to know "retail value is $500".
Can I save money if I bundle? Possibly - once we have more classes available.
How much extra is the Doula add-on for the CBE Combo class? That right now we are offering a special deal of only $100 no rebozo or $130 if you want to add in a rebozo with that. The add-on class is still being decided on books - however, we may include one book. We are planning to add in more information ASAP about the doula-add on. The doula add-on portion will be done in Google classroom. One must enroll in CBE to qualify for the doula add-on as they are integrated. Are there membership fees? We have what we are calling Magnificat Pro - and you can pay $50 a year extra for this option - it gives you discounts on future classes and CEU classes. We do ask graudates to participate in CEU's each year on a kind of honor system. This membership is completely optional - however, it will also get your name in 3 directories - our Magnificat Directory, Find a catholic doula and upcoming Pro-Life Doula Association directory - so we think that is one thing to consider. Plus, we hope to feature graduates in our blogs, Facebook posts, etc. So, we will also think of other goodies for members!! We think our membership fee is low cost due to most others charge a lot more and we will gift you the first year totally free to all students who sign in for 2021 classes!!
