Here's what some of our attendees had to say about past DONA International conferences:

"Excellent conference and speakers. It was great to be able to interact with the Founders and BOD all were approachable and friendly. ... This convention has made me very enthusiastic about going home and promoting DONA especially knowing that DONA is standing behind me. Thank you for this great opportunity."

"Enjoyed the slide show and the entire conference. Quality of speakers were excellent!"

"This was my first doula conference. Already I can't wait until next year. It was so exciting to meet and hear from the Drs/ authors of the books I have read and continue to refer to. ... There were some speakers that I felt the clock played tricks on us. The time went by too, too fast."

"Great conference, learned a lot."

"Loved everything overall such a warmth and feel of community – nutritious food."

"I am so impressed with how this conference has been organized! It's the friendliest, most informative conference I have ever been to, and I can tell that the organizers worked incredibly hard and were very dedicated to making it run smoothly. THANK YOU!"

"My first conference, I will be back!!"
