Often times husbands of participants sit in the workshop and they are welcomed (unless prohibited by the venue) and encouraged to attend. There is no fee and no academic work required of them. If a man would like to certify as an AMANI Birth Teacher or Doula he will be required to pay the fees and do all of the academic work involved. Although our participants are typically female, AMANI is proud to have a handful of male affiliates in our mix.
