Important info to read before registering

Please note....by placing your order you agree to the following:  


1.  I understand that if traveling to the workshop I should email Michelle (mtmtrainingandmentoring@gmail.com) to ensure the training is scheduled to run and has enough attendees prior to making my travel arrangements.  Also the exact location may be chosen one month prior to the workshop in the city that is listed, and if necessary the venue may change to accommodate the number of attendees enrolled.  


2.  In order to qualify for certification (or CE's) with ICEA as a childbirth educator, birth doula, or postpartum doula I understand I MUST attend all hours of an IN PERSON training, and must fulfill ICEA's requirements (online trainings do not qualify for certification or CE's).  


3. In order to qualify for certification with Mothering the Mother as a childbirth educator, birth doula, or postpartum doula I understand I MUST complete all the steps laid out on the MTM website http://mtmtraining.org  


4.  I understand that my training fees are not refundable and must be paid in full before the first day of the training, and if I am not able to attend the training I signed up for I can transfer my registration to another person for that workshop day/time (in the case of inclement weather or acts of God it is your responsibility to plan accordingly, and refunds will NOT be given.)   


5.  I understand if I am registering for an online workshop that it is my responsibility to have a reliable device and internet access to join in, and that I am responsible for understanding how to access the workshop prior to the start date.  If I am unsure I will connect with Michelle prior to signing up for the workshop to educate myself on how the online program works, and I understand that I cannot try to work out the kinks the day of the workshop.     


If at anytime you have any questions or concerns please call Michelle at 414-378-9524 or email her mtmtrainingandmentoring@gmail.com.

Bring a Workshop to Your Area

How can I bring a workshop to my area?

Want to bring a workshop to your area?  It is easy.....in most cases all you have to do is ask and help host.  To host you would need to find a location big enough to hold 8-10 individual and then help promote.  The host will be required to transport the trainer to and from the airport and the training location, provide a t.v. with HDMI hook up or another appropriate means of projection for the PowerPoint presentation, and will be required to provide light snacks and refreshments.  The best part is you may even be able to earn your workshop for FREE!!    


If you would like to move forward with hosting and bringing a workshop to your area please fill out the form below to start the process.  


*For workshops outside of the United States the requirements for the number of participants required to hold the workshop, and to receive the workshop for free may be different due to longer travel times and higher expenses incurred on the trainer.
