Here's my two cents, but with the disclaimer that I am currently a nursing student, birth assistant for a home birth CNM and an aspiring CNM.   1.

Actually home birth is already legal in Indiana with a Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM).
I did the DONA postpartum doula workshop and I think that the most important part I got out of the workshop was information on the business side of things.

So it is definitely an option to take the workshop through DONA and not get certified immediately, or at all.
