Next session begins September 24th. Enrollment now open.

The Doula School Business Program was created FOR doulas BY doulas to help you easily launch (or boost) your Doula practice in 3 months or less!

Join me, Stefanie Antunes, as I walk you through the shortcut ways to launch or grow your successful birth business. The doula profession is still new(ish), but figuring out ways to run a successful business are not. It's just that not ALL of the "great business programs" out there work for the doula profession!! There are a few things that are different for us, so following the same rules and methods doesn't always do the trick. No one wants to learn the hard way, wasting time AND money trying to figure it out ('cause none of us have enough of either of those things, right?!).

Here’s what’s included EACH month for 3 months:

  • A kick ass webinar every two weeks to tell you what you need to know (from HOW to start, WHERE to start, and all the itty bitty steps in between in order to launch and grow your biz)
  • An action plan to go with each module (so you can actually DO something with the stuff you LEARN).
  • SPECIAL BONUS: 2 Live Group Q&A Coaching Calls each month to answer your questions (because of course we can't anticipate everything specific to YOU)
  • 24/7 Access to Private Members-Only Community Support Group where you can get ongoing support and connect with doulas who've 'been there done that'.

During our 12 weeks together I’ll share what I’ve learned over the past 15 years of building my own birth business. Before you think “well sure, you’ve had 15 years to grow your business, of course it’s successful!” …let me tell you that I’ve grown it over 1000% in just the past 5 years! I got REAL with myself and my goals and STOPPED doing the things that weren’t working. I want to share what those were with you!

This course is probably right for you IF….

  • You’ve done doula training (or other birth work training) and are ready to start/grow your business
  • You are excited as heck to get your business started but are overwhelmed at where and how to begin
  • You have little/no business experience and are ready to learn how to start
  • You are committed to following simple steps one at a time to achieve your goals
  • You’ve tried a few things but are frustrated that they’re not working
  • You are SO DONE with making excuses and you're ready to make your dreams come true

This course probably ISN’T right for you IF…..

  • You don’t believe that doulas and birth workers can make a living at this work (it's ok if you're not quite sure yet, but you need to have hope)
  • You find yourself having an excuse for why things don’t/won’t work for "YOU"
  • You don’t really enjoy this work that much
  • You’re unwilling to expand your thinking and try new things

Get started now!

"I was really struggling with my website SEO. I spent a year trying to figure it out, registering with Google and Bing and doing everything I thought I needed to do. I even starting watching Youtube videos on how to optimize your website. I talked with Stefanie and she offered me some simple tips to try. After implementing these my website traffic went up 800%. I had more hits on my website in the two weeks after doing these small changes than I had had in the four months prior. I can't thank Stefanie enough! You don't know what you don't know!"

- Andrea, Birth and Postpartum Doula

"I attend and deliver lots of workshops & seminars for educators, birth doulas and other wellness professionals who support pregnant families. Often people leave their workshop excited and empowered to bring their new training & services to the families in their community but they feel stuck and unsure of how to actually promote & build their business. The Doula School is the perfect solution to this problem. You will increase your business in an industry that is growing and changing every day and learn from a successful and sought-after leader in the birthing community. You won’t be disappointed! !"

A Letter from Stefanie Antunes
Big Kahuna Doula


Five years ago I found myself a single mother. I had reported a whole $25k from my doula work the year before. Rent in my town was going to be that much per year. I wondered how the HELL I was going to continue the work I'd been passionate about for the past decade and support my kids.

I kept the business running but took a temporary position at the same time. I was burning the candle at both ends. I didn't think doula work would make me enough money, but I couldn't fathom giving up the work I was so passionate about eiter. I felt torn.

So I did what I always do. I looked for help. Anywhere and everywhere. And you know what happened? I found it! I grew my business by over 1000% over the 5 years to follow. And you know I had the answers inside me all along!!

I don't want to see ANY doulas give up their doula career because it doesn't give them enough money. So I've spent the past 3 years tracking what made the difference for me in my business so I could help others by sharing my "secrets" that aren't really such secrets after all.

I'm so excited to be launching this program that has been years in the making. It won't be perfect cause I'm not perfect. But if you're imperfect like me and want to grow your birth business, maybe I'll have some insights to help you.

If you're thinking "hey, this chick seems alright...then join me and we'll do some cool stuff together...like grow you a doula practice!
