A ONE-OF-A KIND PROGRAM DESIGNED TO OFFER DOULAS AND WELLNESS PROFESSIONALS A DEEPER UNDERSTANDING OF THE (IN)FERTILITY JOURNEY.
Infertility rates are increasing, with an estimated 48.5 million couples, and 186 million individuals living with infertility. Folks going through it often feel alone, unsupported, and overwhelmed, this is where you come in. The Fertility Specialist program has been specifically curated to educate perinatal professionals on ways to provide support, comfort, and evidence-based information to people going through infertility.
As a Fertility Specialist, you will understand the latest in reproductive science and the body’s psychophysiological response to stress, and how that impacts fertility.
Use this certification to support families as a Fertility Doula or nurture this specialty into your current services. Once you have completed this course, your understanding of the emotional experience of (in)fertility at all stages, as well as the technicalities involved with getting pregnant through Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART), will set you apart as a practitioner.

I’ve been thinking this in my head for weeks now and wanted to reach out to you personally to let you know that you are SO AWESOME. Seriously. With my academic background in science and as an educator (high school science for 10 years) I love your teaching style. It’s very clear and thorough. It’s also very evident that you are super duper knowledgeable about everything you are teaching - and it comes through with confidence. I’m LOVING the fertility course - it brings together all elements that I am passionate about: science, yoga, meditation, and working with people. My case study client enjoyed our time together so much she’s personally handing out my cards!
The teachers at bebo mia are more than just teachers! They are so inclusive, helpful and knowledgeable! They are incredibly easy to talk to and up to date with any current studies and practices. They truly want you to succeed and help you with your climb to the top. bebo mia is different than any other training institution because they create a profound sense of community with their students while providing them with the highest level of education. I’m incredibly grateful for the opportunities and doors that Bianca, Natasha and the other #bebobabes have opened up for me. I would recommend bebo mia!!
Hello everyone!!! WOW! The past two nights have been so powerful! So I taught my new and improved Fertility Yoga Class. It was great... Last week the yoga manager messaged me saying only two people signed up so we should cancel but I said no! And I had SEVEN women arrive with 3 saying they are going to do drop in classes going forward.
The class was good. I think we all were nervous. Actually I know we all were. But it really went well. Lots of tears. But it was a gentle class and at the end everyone felt relaxed. I made a special blend of essential oils in a spray and they loved that! In savasana I went around with my sound bowl and warmed my hands and held the feet of each participant. Sending them with love and light. Before class I had created an altar and put up affirmation cards. Had my essential oils diffuser going too. It was so cozy!
This group was a mix of individuals who have not been able to conceive (unexplained infertility) at all and others who have had traumatic losses. And even though each journey is so different, the empathy and compassion was AMAZING to experience.
And today I went to lunch with 3 women who attended my Yoga for Fertility classes LAST year who are all pregnant! They call us the "Fertility Warrior Mamas Group!"
I am getting a ton of great feedback! It really feels like I have a purpose!!!!
Thank you so much bebo mia for providing this amazing course. I was able to build on my existing foundation and offer more to my community!!!
