    I am trying to decide where to get my birth doula training. I have looked into DONA and it seems like a lot more money and I would have to travel to workshops and classes. I have three kids so traveling is hard for me. I have seen a little bit of information on Childbirth International and am...

    Hi I have a few questions about doulas. I am considering going through training to become a doula because I always wanted to be a midwife, however I have a large family (7children) so schooling for midwife is time consuming and expensive. I have always wanted to help women with childbirth in...

    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...

    Hi, everyone! I'm planning on starting my training/certification with Childbirth International next month, and I have a question: Is it feasible to start out my business as a postpartum doula and breastfeeding counselor ONLY? As in, not training in or attending births at all? I have a 3...

    I took a DONA doula workshop 3.5 years ago... the limit to getting all the requirements for certification is 3 years, so in order to become certified through them apparently I'd have to take another workshop and then attend 3 births. I'm not really wanting to take another workshop because of the...

    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...
  11. I'm Pregnant
    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...

    I am sure this question gets asked a lot, but naming a new business is hard! I don't want to use just my name because it is difficult to spell and pronounce. And I don't want to use the name of the town I currently live in since we may be relocating in a year or two so I'd prefer the name not...

    Hey there! I'm enrolled in BAI and as part of the curriculum I have to take a local Childbirth Education course. I see awesome value in this, not only will I be learning what the women in my area are learning, but I will meet more pregnant women and be able to introduce myself as a student...

    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)...

    Hi everyone. I am a new birth doula who is working towards her certification. I just found out that one of my clients has been running a fever, has chills, migraine and high blood pressure. She is seeing the doctor tomorrow and if her blood pressure increases more than today, she may need to...

    I'm looking for someone to hopefully encapsulate my placenta. But the nearest person to me wants $225. I'm hoping to find someone a bit, cheaper.

    Hey everyone. I'm a doula in training, kind of. I just had my first birth, and have a couple more lined up. I've been trying to think of a name for my business. After my first birth, it hit me: Full Moon Doula Services. Because my first birth was on a full moon and I love the vibe I got from...

    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...
