<p>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. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>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</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Thoughts? Advice?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>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.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Thank you!</p>

<p>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.</p>

<p>There is a large thread on the Facebook group Doula to Doula Support raising some concerns about Intuitive Childbirth.  <a href="https://www.facebook.com/groups/doulatodoulasupport/permalink/801262949890190/" target="_blank">https://www.facebook.com/groups/doulatodoulasupport/permalink/801262949890190/</a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>The group is only for doulas or those aspiring to be one.  Hope that helps.</p>

<p>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.  </p>
