Since this course is self-paced, it is the student who determines the full cost.*

*The Charis Course for Childbirth Professionals is a self-paced course, meaning that those with more time to devote to their studies or those with previous experience will be able to complete the course more quickly than those with less time or less experience. The Childbirth Educator/Doula Track does have a time limit, however, for those who seek certification. Because recertification is required every 3 years, students have 3 years to complete the initial certification requirements. Students who do not seek certification have no time constraints. Most students complete this track within 18 months.
