Hey everyone! I'm new to this community and I have a question for experienced doulas out there.
My current job is in behavioral health- I make 15K a year. Right now I am able to live on this amount (it's not easy, but I can make it work). Do you think it is possible to make this much as a doula? I live in Grand Rapids, Mi, which is a mid size city. Do you think there is a minimum number of births one would need to attend monthly to make 15K? I don't feel that is a large amount of money at all, and I know that being a doula is not the most lucrative, but this is my passion. In the future I want to be a midwife, and I feel that this would be a great foot in the door of this field. Any advice?
Thank you in advance for any ideas!!!
