Anyone familiar with Intuitive Childbirth for doula certification?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I'm finding there are so many different ways to be certified as a birth doula, it's a little overwhelming.  Seems like DONA is most known, which may mean being found by women in need through their site.  After all, when I searched Doula, that's the first thing that came up. 

 

Intuitive Childbirth is a free program if you get chosen in their lottery, or you could pay for a guaranteed spot. It seems to be all online

 

Thoughts? Advice?

 

My longterm goal is to be a midwife, so I thought this would be a good starting point while I go through the process. I will be looking at CNM because it seems to have more options as far as working in hospitals, birth centers and home births in NJ.

 

Thank you!

It looks like your post may have been missed, so I'm bumping it up for attention. :bump: Anyone have information to share?

I'm currently through their program and can vouch for them. Great intro and has an awesome support base and learning community. They offer work with Placentas, LC, CBE and doulas so a bit of everything is availble for a good price.

There is a large thread on the Facebook group Doula to Doula Support raising some concerns about Intuitive Childbirth.  https://www.facebook.com/groups/doulatodoulasupport/permalink/801262949890190/

 

The group is only for doulas or those aspiring to be one.  Hope that helps.

Please do your research.  I second joining the Doula To Doula group on Facebook, there are a lot of experienced women on the board who will give you great information.
