[this was posted in "midwives and doulas" & "finding your tribe"]

Hip hip hooray! I just got the phone call!

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.

Anyway...I was just looking for some other students, prospective or new doulas to connect with, communicate, all that.

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.

There is another thread somewhere around here for doulas-in-training - if you do a search you'll probably find it!

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.

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.
