2) request in writing to transfer to a future training. There is no fee to transfer and your paid registration remains the same whether or not the price of the training increases the next time it is offered.  

We are unable to accommodate cancellations inside the 30-day window. 

Birth doulas who are called to a birth before 8:00 am on the day of the public training may request to be transferred to a later training of their choice or request a full refund less a $45 cancellation fee.

In the case that the class minimum of 10 paid participants is not met, monies collected will be held for a rescheduled date.

There are no refunds or cancellations for privately contracted consulting or training programs that are offered by Spark Equity LLC.
