Now accepting Scholarship Applications for MSP Spring 2017!!!
Posted on March 2nd, 2017
It’s almost that time of year again where birth is everywhere. The Spring baby wave will be starting, flowers will be blooming and we are all anxiously waiting for #ApriltheGiraffe to have her baby. Here at the bebo mia headquarters we are all hustling to get ready to welcome a new wave of students into our Spring programs. That means we have already opened registration for our Maternal Support Practitioner (aka doula) training & certification which starts March 30th, 2017!
We are thrilled to announce that the Scholarship Application Process for our doula training & certification program is officially open!
As we come into our 15th class for Spring 2017, we want to talk about the fact that we are so proud of how the program has grown over the years. One of the major differences our program has, compared to what is out there, is that we offer accessible trainings for anyone, anywhere. Our second major difference, and this one is our favourite, is that we offer intensive support throughout the entire process. Nervous about your first client in labour? We are right there next to you! Reach out and we will talk to you to get you ready! Not sure how to market your business? We will help you with that too!
Our doula training is so much more than providing you with the skills you will need to do doula work. It is a community. It is a group of cheerleaders. It is a squad in your corner – it’s some legit #squadgoals.
We know that not everyone can afford the education necessary for their dream career. Globally, women, especially women with children in their care, miss out on educational opportunities which could lead to an earning potential. This is something that we are working to overcome at bebo mia inc.
Our mission is to support women in connecting to their intrinsic value and power. We believe that education, especially education that will support your income, is power. Each year bebo mia inc. offers scholarship placements to women in financial need so that they can complete our Maternal Support Practitioner training and launch their doula careers.
Our next Maternal Support Practitioner training session begins Thursday March 30th, 2017 at 7pm EST.
Our training runs for 12 weeks (plus a bonus week!) and covers fertility, pregnancy, the postnatal period AND business. All of the classes are live and online, so you can interact, ask questions, and make sure you are confident with the material. With our training taking place online it eliminates the need and costly expense for care for your children while you are in class, and did we mention the live classes are also recorded? You get to listen anytime, anywhere, which is the ideal fit for your busy schedule.
Community is a crucial and integral aspect of our training.
The women who have graduated from our program are from all over the world and yet there is a constant feeling of closeness and connection in our classes and Facebook support group. We all give and receive an incredible amount of information and praise as we go through the training and beyond. It never feels like we are separated by hundreds or thousands of miles.
How do you apply? Just complete this application and let us know why you should receive a full scholarship.
All entries must be received by March 19th, 2017 11:59 PM EST to be considered. We will be reviewing them and announcing our winner on March 20th, 2017.

Want to meet last year’s winners? Officially, we only select 1 winner and for the Fall 2016 class we had 6 since we could not choose from all of the amazing applications! We had our Canadian gals Amber Dawn, Brianna, Ashley & Nadine. We also had our sisters to the south (the US) Miranda & Amanda. They are all doing so well starting their doula businesses and we could not be more proud of them!
If you have any questions for us, just comment below and we will get you your answers.
We want to note that in order to complete the bebo mia inc. doula training, applicants will need access to a computer and high speed internet for streaming the classes.
