[this was posted in "midwives and doulas" & "finding your tribe"]<br><br>
Hip hip hooray! I just got the phone call! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br>
Let me explain: There's an organization "Suffolk County Perinatal Coalition" that trains women to be mentors to poor, mostly young single mothers(which I do), provides baby clothes, etc. Anyway-they give away scholarships once a year to four-six women to become trained as doulas. I got one of the scholarships! The training is on 6 saturdays (begining Sept 27th ending Dec 6th) from 9-4 and it's completely free for me. All I have to do is volunteer my services to 3 poor women per year.<br><br>
Anyway...I was just looking for some other students, prospective or new doulas to connect with, communicate, all that.<br><br>
Best of Luck and Best Wishes!

I'm taking my training in mid-October and I am very excited. The program you are going to be working with sounds wonderful - I wonder if there is anything similar here, I'll have to look.<br><br>
There is another thread somewhere around here for doulas-in-training - if you do a search you'll probably find it!<br><br>

I took the training from DONA a couple of years ago, but have since had a baby and am still nursing, so I am taking a break from certifying til I'm done nursing.<br><br>
I loved my class and if I never get to help in a birth, I wouldn't be sorry at all, since the info I got from it and how it helped me to reflect on my own birth experiences is priceless.<br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">
