Find a Doula Workshop
To pursue certification, one of the things you will need to do is take DONA International-approved birth doula training workshops (for other requirements, see certification). To be a Birth Doula, you will need 16 hours of DONA International-approved training plus a childbirth education series (a prenatal class) of at least 12 hours. You may substitute a DONA International-approved introductory workshop in place of the childbirth education series. To be a postpartum doula, you will need 27 hours of DONA International-approved postpartum doula training. Our workshop locator below will help you find DONA International-approved workshops in your area.
