Find a Doula Workshop

To pursue certification, one of the requirements is to attend a DONA approved birth doula workshops (for a list of additional requirements, see certification). A Birth doula, must attend a 16 hour DONA approved birth doula workshop plus a childbirth education series (a prenatal class) of at least 12 hours. You may substitute a seven (7) hour DONA approved introduction to childbirth for doulas course in place of the childbirth education series. A postpartum doula, must attend a 27 hour DONA approved postpartum doula workshop. All certification requirements must be completed within four (4) years of attending either the postpartum or birth doula workshop. Our workshop locator below will help you find DONA approved workshops in your area. Please mention the location and dates when contacting trainers for more information about a DONA Doula Workshop.
