Refund/Make-Up Policy (Please Read!)

Cancellation Policy: A full refund minus a $75 cancellation fee will be provided upon request up until one month before the training begins; after that time, refunds will not be issued.

Transfer/Make-Up Policy: Should you need to transfer your registration to another training, you may do so without penalty up until four weeks before a training begins. Once we are within four weeks of a training, we cannot guarantee you a spot in a future training but will accommodate you IF the training is under-enrolled and we have a spot available for a $75 fee. In this case, you may receive very short notice of a make-up opportunity and should plan accordingly. Illness, family emergencies, last-minute babysitting or transportation challenges, and so on, are not our responsibility but we will make every reasonable effort to accommodate your situation.

Doula Business Builder Deluxe Package. If you purchase this package and change your mind about completing the package after attending only a portion of the trainings, your refund will equal the total amount paid minus the full cost of each component you did complete or receive access to, and the $75 cancellation fee. Please note that in cases where you registered for a class and did not provide one month notice of cancellation, then you are not eligible for a refund for that portion of the package.

Winter Storms. We will not issue refunds due to winter storms and other conditions beyond our control. Please allow plenty of extra time for travel if bad weather is threatening. If extreme blizzard or ice conditions coincide with the onset of a workshop and make driving hazardous, we may delay the start time or otherwise adapt the parameters of the training (check your email for updates). If driving conditions become hazardous in the middle of a training weekend and you are driving back and forth a fair distance each day, you are welcome to bring some portable bedding/change of clothes and stay at the Center overnight. We have two couches and a queen-size air mattress on hand, as well as floor cushions, pillows and blankets. We cannot be held liable for airfare costs accrued due to circumstances beyond our control. 

Attendance Policy. In order to provide you with proof of having completed a DONA International workshop, you will need to attend the workshop in its entirety. Should you become ill or otherwise unable to complete a training you have started, the Transfer/Make-Up Policy (above) will apply.
