I'm planning to begin my doula training soon and attend a conference in the next month or two. I figured I'd go with DONA since there are no federal guidelines yet for doulas and DONA is the most widely recognized. There is a training in a month and a half about 1.5 hours from me. But I just found out that there is a Birth Arts training right here where I live in a month. I checked out their website and it seems their requirements for certification are even more than DONA, which is fine with me. So, is there any reason you would go with one over the other?
