Hello all!!

I live in the panhandle of Florida, and I really want to be a midwife, but I think being a doula is a good way to prepare for that and also build a resume. Also, I LOVE the idea of helping women plan their births and make it THEIR experience as opposed to the hospital's or Doc's experience.

Do I have to be an RN, LPN, or CNA first?
What are the requirements and where can I go to train?

Thanks for all the help and info!!!!
