Student Membership

Visalia Birth Network is proud to now offer a Student Membership for aspiring birth and postpartum doulas, lactation helpers, and childbirth educators!

The Benefits of Student Membership are:

* A special membership rate for 2015 of only $20
* A student listing on our website to start getting your name out there! If you aren’t ready for a student listing, we will name you as a VBN supporter
* Admission to an online mentorship group, developed just for this new group of students

As this is a new program, we are working on additional perks for students – so there is likely more to come! this would be the minimum of what to expect.

Please fill out the form below and make your payment via the Paypal button. You will then be contacted by a member of VBN who will ensure you are added to the mentoring group via Facebook and discern your preferences for your online listing.

Welcome to the VBN family and congratulations on your new path of richly satisfying work, helping mothers and babies.
