It's going to cost me around $1,000.00 to become a Certified Doula, and I need to come up with about $800.00 of that in the next two months. I need to complete certain requirements before attending births, so if I can do this before June I should be able to count my best friends labor and delivery (you must attend 3 births before becoming DONA Certified). Not to mention I need to get as much accomplished before my own baby is due in September.
I do not have parents and this is not the kind of thing that is eligible for student loans, and we certainly don't have the money laying around so I realize that in order to do this I am going to have to rely on myself and my abilities to make beautiful things for beautiful people who enjoy supporting the goals and positive outcomes of another - and the great karma (and jewelry) that comes along with it. So, if you feel compelled, please buy something from Gypsy Jewels for yourself or someone you love and ask your friends to do the same. I promise you wont be disappointed and wouldn't be able to thank you enough. I know times are hard for a lot of us, but I believe that if we help eachother in any way we can, we can still see dreams come true and goals become reality.
