Following the above protocol helps me to easefully keep track of payment plans- and be able to keep offering them.

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, who are actively working within their communities, and intend to use INNATE’s training to serve women and families in the postpartum period.

These scholarships are offered in acknowledgement of the racist and unjust history within the U.S., and how that history affects us as 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.

These two small grants 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 my family and I support 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, I suggest to consider the following:

  1. We offer payment plans- as outlined above.
  2. Apply for a grant from a supporting organization.
  3. Take out a personal loan from a loved one.
  4. Perhaps an existing client will pay you ahead of time- allowing you to take this training.
  5. 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. Requests are already being made by women and their families, who are seeking the kind of care that INNATE Postpartum Care provides. I know the world is wanting and needing what this training offers.

I share this information with all of you in a good way. This letter is directed towards the -collective- and not at any one individual. It is our time as women to align ourselves with the Spirit of Life- which by its nature, is prosperous and abundant.
