Hi everyone,<br><br>
I have asked this question before but I can not find my information anymore, so I was hoping for some help. I would like to become a Doula, however right now it is not feasible to pursue it after I obtain my certification, so I was thinking of getting my childbirth educator certification for now. I figure it is good to have anyways. Where would be a good place to start?<br><br>
Also for those who are Childbirth educators and/or Doulas, do you know if I would have to retake courses/ cert. when I relocate to Mass.?<br><br>
I am trying to not have to retake courses after courses if possible. In 3yrs is when my youngest will be in school so then I can go back to work and still have time with the kids. So I figured I can study during this time so by that time I will be on my way to pursue doula work or childbirth educator.<br><br>

I am both a doula and a childbirth educator, and I LOVE what I do! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> It is not likely that you would have to recertify, as doulas and CBEs are not regulated in the US. Have fun on your journey!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">
