What Our Graduates Say:

Chessie King Carter Doula Course Testimonial

King Carter

YES to becoming a doula! I found the most phenomenal course and finished it back in 2019. My teacher, Kicki Hansard at The BirthBliss Academy is sunshine bottled up in human and I adore her.

Eloise Rickman Doula Course Testimonial

Eloise Rickman

Doing Kicki's course was probably the best money I have ever spent. The course covered everything I could have wished for, was well structured, set in a beautiful informal setting, and I enjoyed the intimate atmosphere with a small group of women. I not only feel well prepared to start my path as a doula, but I feel uplifted as a mother and as a woman.

Sue Lloyd Doula Course Testimonial


​Most definitely one of the most inspiring courses I have been on. Kicki has a vast wealth of knowledge and you come away feeling confident for the next step of your doula journey. Would most definitely recommend her course to anyone thinking of becoming a doula.

Malwina Downing Course Testimonial

Malwina Downing

If you’re on Kicki’s website searching for the doula course, the Universe has brought you here for a reason. She is one of the strongest, ambitious and wise women I have ever met. This course will not only provide you with all the knowledge you need on how to support a woman during pregnancy and childbirth, but will also prepare you to run your own business. Don’t look any further!

Pratiksha Agarwal Course Testimonial


Absolutely brilliant course! I felt Kicki was really welcoming, it made me feel warm and more confident. I think this course gives you a better understanding of what a doula can do and how fantastic this job is, to support women in the most precious time of women’s life.
