Frequently Asked Questions

Money Matters

1. Do you accept payment plans for INNATE Postpartum Care- Certification Training?

Yes, payment plans are accepted for INNATE’s training in the following way:
Money is sent to me through PayPal: through the ‘friends and family’ option. $97 reserves your space. Up to 3 total payments can be made.

In the notes section of your payment through PayPal, include the following information: Your name; How much money you are paying out of total payment; How much money you have payed in total; Class location/where you are attending INNATE’s training. Following the above protocol helps me to easely keep track of payment plans- and be able to keep offering them.

Payment plans must be paid-in-full no later then THREE WEEKS prior to course start date.

Payments are non-refundable.

2. Do you offer scholarships/grants/trades for INNATE Postpartum Care- Certification Training?

My family and I offer two $100 grants per INNATE training to birthkeepers of color and single Mothers, who are actively working within their communities. Through grant writing and consistent outreach, we do at times have larger scholarship opportunities available.

The scholarships we offer are in acknowledgement of the world’s racist and unjust history—with the understanding that this ‘history’ affects all of humankind, today.

My family and I believe that when we address this history through dismantling our own conditioning, conscious dialogue AND external action—we will be able to create a world based in love and justice.

The small scholarships we offer are -part- of this ACTION for my family and I; with the acknowledgement that culturally competent and accessible birth/postpartum programs are -part- of the solution to reproductive injustices that exist and persist.

Our family is not in the position to offer trades/scholarships/loans beyond these two scholarships we do offer. This business structure we have created is how our family assures our health and vitality—therefore assuring our ability to continue offering what we do. INNATE’s training is how our family supports ourselves, and represents 15plus years of hard work and synthesis of information.

If you are wanting to participate in INNATE Postpartum Care- Certification Training and do not currently have the funds to register, we can suggest the following:

  • We offer payment plans- as outlined above.
  • Apply for a grant from a supporting organization.
  • Take out a personal loan from a loved one.
  • Perhaps an existing client will pay you ahead of time- allowing you to take this training.

There are many possibilities available to manifest the resources needed to take this training.

I created this training in part to give to women the necessary tools to create thriving businesses- in integrity and alignment with Life. Inquiries are already being made by women and their families, who are seeking the kind of care that INNATE Postpartum Care provides.
