"I am so incredibly thankful to have found A Woman Who Serves Doula Training! I have been wanting to pursue becoming a birth and postpartum support person for a few years, but the timing was never quite right. I feel so blessed that when the timing was finally right I was able to complete my certification through AWWS and under Amaris. She is a gifted instructor, infused a Christian perspective through the program, was quick to reply to questions and offer guidance, and thoroughly prepared me for my work in the birth world. I cannot recommend this program enough and look forward to to taking more courses through AWWS in the future." Jessie 

"Can I just say how much I love loved this class series? I have taken other classes and have been involved in childbirth education for awhile now, and your class is the best one I've seen so far. Everything is well organized and logically laid out. I also very much appreciate your servant's attitude about the whole process. We get the feeling that you really want us to learn this, so that more women can be served." Priscilla 

"I am so thankful to have found A Woman Who Serves Doula Certification Program! I longed to be a certified birth doula, but I needed something self-paced that I could chip away at when my kiddos were sleeping or busy playing and I preferred a program that was led by a fellow believer and faith-based so I wouldn't have to compromise my personal convictions. Amaris is a wonderful teacher, and the course was super thorough. I am confident in my ability to provide excellent birth support and a huge part of that is because of this program! I can't wait to pursue more AWWS certifications in the future!"  Ashley 

"What I loved about this program is that it's Christ centered, and it was so easy to sign up and get access to all the information to help me further my career. I got to meet other great women who are pursuing becoming a doula. It was all so very friendly and very educational."  Maddesyn

"I am so grateful to have been referred to this course by a friend who also trained under Amaris. The convenience of being able to complete training virtually and at my own pace was important for me as I balanced family and career. Having an instructor who so boldly and apologetically affirms the miracle of life and the role of women as created by God is a refreshing gift in our culture. Her gentle way of faithful instruction, coupled with her depth of knowledge and experience in the field, makes Amaris a gift to the birth education field."  Jessica

"I cannot say enough good things about A Woman Who Serves Doula Training. I was looking for awhile for a program that shared my values. Finally, I found AWWS and was overjoyed. The training is very affordable, which was a pleasant surprise, as many I look into previously were pretty pricey. While the training is affordable, the value is high! Amaris is an excellent teacher. She is very knowledgeable and has a gift in how she shares that knowledge. I am so thankful for A Woman Who Serves."  Rachel 

"I am so grateful to have found "A Woman Who Serves" doula training. I started my Birth Doula certification with another well-known organization but confidently made the switch when I found this training which more closely aligns with my personal values, birth philosophies, Christian/Catholic faith, and spiritual beliefs."  Carissa

"Amaris is such a patient, kind, and understanding woman of God. I never do reviews but this program was eye opening and I genuinely feel led to share it with others. Amaris never fails to encourage and uplift her students. I was looking for a Christian program to further expand my education, and she is an answered prayer. Her program is so beautifully executed, created to pour into others, serving others, and teaching others how to serve, all for the Glory of God. I would recommend this program to anyone looking to learn and be under amazing leadership. This program is self-paced and affordable, with assignments, quizzes, and live classes. Amaris equips you with everything that you need to succeed, and doesn't fail to help you, even after you are certified and serving other women."  Yasmine

"A Woman Who Serves Doula Training was my answered prayer! It is exactly what I was looking for, a program that is in line with my personal and spiritual beliefs, incredibly informative and able to work at my own pace-which was huge as a busy mother! Amaris is so knowledgeable and a wonderful teacher. I appreciate how much time she took to answer any questions I had. You can truly see how much she cares about what she does. I highly recommend this to anyone looking to become a doula!"  Elizabeth

"I scoured the internet trying to find a doula training program that fit my busy schedule as a full-time mom and aligned with my faith. Once I discovered AWWS, I knew that I had to look no further. The AWWS Birth Doula training exceeded all of my expectations! At the conclusion of the program, I feel confident, prepared, and ready to go out and serve as a birth doula."  Caitie

"As I worked through my certification, I felt I was becoming greatly educated with such a well-rounded balance of information in my pursuit of becoming a birth doula. I was comforted that my education was holding true to God's word and what it says about women being vessels who take part in such an act of sacrificial love to bring new life into this world. Amaris was also very encouraging, as she was so responsive with my numerous emails with questions, as well as her interactive teaching of our virtual classes!"  Brittany

"Thank you SO much for this incredible course. You have been such an inspiration and example of a Christian birth worker and educator, and I am so grateful for your witness. When I first started discerning becoming a doula, I knew that I could not handle the politics/wokeness/moral questions of some of the organizations. I am so grateful to have found your course! I feel so equipped and empowered to be a Christian doula because of your training."  Nicole

"I was so grateful for my certification experience with A Woman Who Serves.  From the start, Amaris answered all my questions and AWWS's cross-certification program was a perfect fit for me.  I had trained with a doula organization years ago that no longer exists, and I was able to share my training materials, watch the online training videos, read the resources provided, and participate in live virtual classes to complete my cross-certification on my own timetable (I wanted to complete it quickly!) and at a very reasonable cost.  Beyond the flexibility of virtual training and the benefit of lifelong certification (versus other programs that require costly renewal), it was AWWS's ethos that drew me to this path to certification.  "A Woman Who Serves" literally defines what it means to be a doula, and orients the heart posture of all who partake in AWWS certification from the very start. AWWS aims to honor the tremendous physician, emotional, and spiritual transformation that happens when a woman becomes a mother by empowering women to walk alongside each other through pregnancy, labor, and the postpartum period.  Having gone through a prior doula training program as well as other continuing education opportunities over the years, I was really pleased with the course content and felt it equipped doulas well.  Even more so, I was pleased with the type of doula AWWS aims to produce- a woman competent, compassionate and aware of the privilege and honor it is to walk alongside mothers in this sacred space."  Susanne

"This training is a gem! I did not expect to find a doula training that I truly aligned with, but this one was a perfect fit. Not only did I leave with tools to support women and open a business, but I finished with a village of support and confidence to follow my calling. Amaris teaches clearly and gracefully. I recommend this program!"  Jessi

"Thank you so much, for this course and your wisdom along the way! It has truly been a blessing. I pray God continues to fill you, as you pour out to so many. Your ministry is absolutely beautiful, and I will be forever grateful that I was blessed to be a recipient. From my heart, thank you."  Danielle

"I absolutely loved this course through AWWS. Amaris is a great teacher, support, and the course content was really helpful in equipping me to officially be a birth doula. I was able to do it at my own pace. I am really grateful that it was taught based on Christian values. I learned a lot and am more confident in my passion to serve expecting families. I am very excited to be going on this journey with this training. Thank you Amaris, and I’m so happy to be part of this family!"  Mosa

"AWWS was the perfect course for me to be able to complete my Birth Doula Certification. I love the traditional values, and the ease of keeping up with courses and assignments along the way. Thank you so much, Amaris! I can't wait to complete another course with you!"  Bethany

"A woman who serves doula training was an amazing course. I was able to do my training while deployed so that I could come back to the states and start my business! I loved how descriptive and informative the class was and having the online virtual sessions allowed you to ask any questions and get face to face answers. Highly recommend Amaris’ training to anyone who is interested!"  Jessica

"I’m very grateful to have been introduced to AWWS! I originally started my certification with another organization, but after praying through and with much consideration, I decided to start over with AWWS. I was seeking to find a training that would come from an organization that could prepare me with the appropriate level of education, while also being biblically founded at the core. I so enjoyed the self paced, online modules as I could do things on my own time and really dive in with my learning of the material. As I worked through my certification, I felt I was becoming greatly educated with such a well-rounded balance of information in my pursuit of becoming of a birth doula. I was comforted that my education was holding true to God’s word and what it says about women being vessels who take part in such an act of sacrificial love to bring new life into this world. Amaris was also very encouraging, as she was so responsive with my numerous emails with questions, as well as her interactive teaching of our virtual classes! I honestly didn’t know what to expect when I first heard about AWWS, but I have been extremely impressed and so happy certifying with this organization. I’m thankful to have been able to combine my passion for serving women and Jesus in the way of being able to learn from this biblically based, comprehensive training! Thank you again sincerely for providing this opportunity for so many women! It has been a true blessing."  Brittany

"A Woman Who Serves Doula Training is a beautiful course educating women on how to be confident, caring, and knowledgeable doulas. Amaris is an amazing instructor and woman of God. The doula training is affordable, thorough, and most importantly - fun! The bonus was that it opens the door to a lovely community of doulas and doulas-to-be to have support and resources along the journey! I can't wait to take more A Woman Who Serves certification courses in the future!"   Jade
