Registration & Payment Policies

Registration Policy

If you choose not to pay the full tuition amount for a course at the time of registration, we require a non-refundable registration deposit of $100 for each Birth Doula Workshop and BABE Course.  Without this deposit, we cannot guarantee you a spot in the course.

The registration deadline for all classes is 10 days prior to the first day of each course.  This ensures that we have time to acquire and ship enough materials for each participant.  Late registrations may be accepted at our discretion with an additional fee.

Payment Deadlines

If you have paid a registration deposit, you will be emailed a secure link to pay your remaining tuition balance.  Your tuition balance will be due 3 days before the first day of your selected course.

  • Birth Doula Workshop tuition must be paid in full in order for you to receive the necessary completion certificates for DONA birth doula certification.

Refund Policy

A refund (less $100 deposit) will be granted only if written notification is received 30 days prior to the first day of class.

We cannot grant tuition refunds after the 30-day deadline.  However, your tuition payment may be applied to another ACBE workshop within 2 years.  A retained $100 deposit may also be used towards another class within 2 years.

Cancellation Policy

Occasionally, we have to cancel or reschedule a class due to low attendance.  If you plan to attend a class, we recommend that you register as soon as possible.

If ACBE finds it necessary to cancel a class, full refunds will be given to all registrants.


We currently offer a $25 early enrollment discount for Birth Doula Workshops and BABE Courses.  This discount is automatically applied to registrations up to 30 days before each course.
