Hi! I've been feeling pulled towards the birthing community for a few years now, and the call is getting stronger! I do a lot of advocacy work for births, and have had several experiences helping new mamas...and I love it!
I'm considering becoming a doula. So....can you talk to me about the pros/cons of certifying? If I don't certify, how to train? I am interested in becoming a doula as I explore my path potentially towards midwifery. In our area, there aren't a ton of midwives, and really no one to allow me to apprentice under. Truth be told, I'm a little too busy full-time mothering for midwifery, but I believe I could make a gradual move towards becoming a birth doula.
Any advice? Tips?? Thank you in advance!!
