Please note: in addition to the registration fee, DONA also requires that all trainees own a copy of The Birth Partner by Penny Simkin.
This is a basic doula training for women wishing to become birth doulas. You do not need to be a nurse, a mother or have a medical background. This is the first major step in the certification process with DONA International.
The only prerequisite is that you have a basic understanding of childbirth and the physiology of how birth works. Many women obtain this through reading from the DONA reading list or from attending a childbirth class. (Many childbirth educators in the area will allow you to attend their classes for the purposes of training. Call or email individual educators for more information). Please note: in addition to the registration fee, DONA also required that all trainees own a copy of The Birth Partner by Penny Simkin.
