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. 
Thanks 
Samantha Harris

http://www.childbirthinternational.com/booking/product.php?id=134&a... - Buy 3 courses&category_id=12&product_name=Birth Doula, Postpartum Doula and Breastfeeding Counselor


this is a link to the coarses i was interested in purchising you can browse around and look at the plain doula one or the post partum doula one there a little pricey but you dont have to attend to a seminar
Thanks i looked around a bit but found this one and i like it pretty good beside the fact that it say something along the lines of taking 4 years, LOL. I will go look thanks=-)) I also liked that they had you do the breast feeding and educator stuff all together.
Samantha, what course did you find that you like? I am thinking about looking into becoming a doula too and any help would be appreciated =)

I found that there are different places online that will certify you as a doula but some of the programs i just didnt like the way that they where set up and i am some one that if i am going to do something i going to do it all the way and comment myself to it.
I really like the DONA program, it seems to me vary well put together and it has thing put together that some place make you pay extra for. So that was a big thing for me. If you go to the DONA International web site they have all kinds of info and FAQs on there. They also have a list of all the steps that you need to take to become a doula with them and how much it will coast for each step. It has info for both birth doulas and postpartum doulas and how to become a birth trainer as well. Its a great web site i would start out by checking them out.
I hope that i was able to help=-))
I know it can be to much when you are just starting out and dont know where to start.
