"Nicole and Katie's class was amazing! It was way better than my expectations and that was because Nicole and Katie are incredible teachers. They so informative- full of tips, stories, advice, and so much more. They are incredibly professional yet still very open and funny. They are very realistic and honest about birthing practices yet ideal, hopeful, and passionate. They used up every minute of the class perfectly and there was time to get to know the beautiful women who attended the class too. If you are thinking about becoming a doula or want to know more about supporting mothers in birth- this will change your life. I hope Nicole and Katie continue to train thousands of doulas- the world will be so much better for it. "- Deborah

"From the start, Nicole and Katie lead our birth doula workshop with warmth and professionalism. She is equal parts passionate and knowledgeable, which made it a joy to learn from her. I continue to feel supported by her and know I can turn to her for advice and support. I know, too, that she is rooting for me. I recommend her workshops to all."- Katherine

"When I decided to enter doula training, I figured it would be a few years before I felt ready to begin birth work. However, I left the training feeling knowledgeable, supported and completely empowered. Finally having found my path, the graceful fusion doula training began my journey to a successful career serving women in my community"- Lindsey

“I walked out of Katie and Nicole's May 2016 training determined to be a practicing doula and that's just what I did!  As a new doula interviewing with parents can be daunting-- they ask for your experience and you have very little which can easily count against you.  Every time a parent asked for my experience I spoke the truth but included how well rounded my training was.  I'd mention how easy it was to become a doula but that I was fortunate enough to attend a training that went above and beyond Dona Standards.  On the final day of training my head was buzzing and my heart was racing,  I was ready!  The day I completed this training I was ready to be a doula.  This training left me with a strong foundation and I could go anywhere I wanted.  I am a strong, confident and full time birth doula thanks to this training!  It was one of the best choices I've ever made.  If I have a regret it's that I didn't attend this training sooner!” - Casey

“I sought out doula training to become more versed in the knowledge and language of birth so I could become a better birth photographer.  Nic's class not only gave me the education and knowledge I was seeking, but also a level of caring and understanding of the birth process, the parents, and the all the professionals who assist at birth. The knowledge I gained was immediately apparent at my first birth after her class - I felt more prepared, instantly knew what was happening and why, and was able to anticipate the moments I knew the parents wanted to have documented.  Her class has helped me be a better birth storyteller. I would highly recommend to anyone who wants to be a doula or part of the birth process to start with her class.” - Emily
