What Our Students Say

I feel like this program was very thorough and well put together! I really enjoyed the fact that I could listen to the lectures anywhere.

Charish D.

Crossover Graduate

I felt it was very comprehensive, and loved doing it. I honed in on the holistic parts of the program because I mostly support hospital births and bringing that aspect to the prenatal education. One of the reasons I chose this program was to remind me where I came from: I had 4 home births and my preparation for them was getting in touch with myself.

Maria Armstrong

Crossover Graduate

I think the crossover program had everything I needed to complete my certification. It was good to go over all the information in the course materials and still complete things that people in the regular doula certification program would do. Thank you for a very complete course!

Melissa Fisher

Crossover Graduate

I very much enjoyed even having this type of program as an option for getting my certification redone and finding a program that honors previous birth work.
