Hi my name is Samantha Harris and i just started to become a doula, as well i am in school to become a nurse midwife as well. I just wonted to ask all you ladies about your road to become a doula and how that was for you and how long did it take. On the DONA web site it give you 4 years to complete the process. I also wonted to ask does it really take that long? I just starting out and still figuring out this all so any input is greatly appreciated . I just thought it would be nice to read all the different ways you all became doulas and the different things that you came across in the process.
