    I recently decided to become a Hypnodoula through Hypnobabies. I am very excited to start the coursework. Does anyone have experience with the Hypnodoula training or certification process? Just wondering if you have any advice or stories to share. I read that doulas are required to complete...

    I am trying to decide what organization I want to train with and possibly certify with. It is very important to me that I am not limited to doctor or midwife attended births. What organizations are supportive or indifferent to unassisted birth? If I can't find one, I will do the training and...

    Greetings doula mamas! I am planning on starting doula training early 2014- but I have to decide which route to go. I'm sure this question has been posed before, but I still have to decide between live vs distance learning (which would ultimately determine which program I go with). I have...

    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...

    I don't know if I should be concerned if I am pregnant or not. I am on birth control for over 6 years. Always had peroids and this week I had a period for one day. I am not stressed out no new changes in life. Past few weeks I feel drained. Always tired. I took a at home pregnancy test it says...

    Seriously considering ppd certification and also CLC. I know I would be looking at an average of 3 overnights a week, and that is only for part time (more if I need to work more hours). Shifts are 10pm to 6 am. From 10-12 its busy time, then after that its trying to rest/sleep while baby(ies)...

    Hello everyone! I've been looking into certifying to be a labor doula (and possibly postpartum, and CBE as well). I think I've narrowed it down to BAI and CBI. I really like that BAI teaches from the Wise Woman tradition, and that they see birth as a transition from womanhood to motherhood. I...

    Hello everyone! I am a low income single mom and massage therapist who really wants to get my doula training. Unfotunetly its hard for me to find a doula program that I can afford. I really want to become a doula and breast feeding counselor, but I am having a hard time being able to afford...
