Do you have a strong desire to help women and babies? Does the idea of assisting a couple with their labor and birth excite you? Well, follow your heart and check out how to become a Certified Birth Doula through DONA International! It is the oldest, largest, and most recognized certifying organization in the world. Your journey starts with a Birth Doula Workshop!
I was blessed to be instructed by Penny Simkin and Kathy McGrath in Cancun! I was nervous at my first training, of course, but the desire to instill the blessing of becoming a doula kept driving me! Now I offer trainings throughout the San Diego county region, including Temecula/Murrieta, and Solana Beach.
I have trained dozens of women who have become certified. Don’t be afraid of an overload of doulas…there can NEVER be too many. Truth is doulas are chosen due to the connection the couple have with her. And every Mom has different criteria for who their “perfect doula” should be! Besides our profession is more of a sisterhood supporting each other; not a competition between each other. Mom’s need to feel “connected” with the one they choose, as it’s a very personal relationship, after all! Please feel free to check it out, especially if you have felt that tug toward birth work. You will NOT be disappointed!
