I did the ICEA educators program, the DONA doula program, and am currently doing the CAPPA lactation program.
Will disassociate myself from ICEA forever, what a group...
DONA is great, but very "soft"
ALACE rocks, but I am not a member
I now teach privately, and get referrals from Ped's as well as MW's. I occasionally run ads in the paper.
At first I taught for the local health dept. so that took care of that.
I charge $120 for my 6 week class, $300 for births $30 per visit for lactation counseling.
I am in a small island community, so get about 4 birth per year as a doula, 6 couples per year for students, and 2 clients per month lactation. Basically, it is a hobby, but one I love!!!
