Any Doulas Out There?

After going through this pregnancy and home birth, I have gotten really involved in birthing and birth rights. I love talking about all things birth related. In fact my Facebook friends are probably pretty annoyed. :p

I am starting to consider becoming a doula down the road to put this passion to use!

Is anyone here a doula? If so, what program did you use to get certified?

  • My cousin is. I think she is certified through DONA. I think it is worldwide.

  • I'm no doula, but its certification through DONA. It's gonna take about 4 years to complete. I think this would be a great job for you if you're passionate about it. Good for you! Good Luck :)

  • Thanks! I know that DONA is definitely the largest recognized program.

    I'm excited about this possibility but will need to at least wait until the kids are a bit older.

  • I trained with toLabor.  https://www.tolabor.com/  They are a fantastic organization.  I would recommend them and I have also heard great things about DONA.
