Birth Doula Certification
Comprehensive, Self-Paced Doula Certification Training with Hands-On Fieldwork
This certification program includes three essential components including the provision of labor support, affirmation of Doula skills, and reflective practice. During this long-form course, participants will complete our DTD Childbirth Course, DTD Postpartum Course, and our three-day intensive Birth Doula Training Workshop, while completing hands-on fieldwork with birthing parents and their communities. Fieldwork includes attending an infant feeding class, attending a minimum of six births where participants provide labor support, complete reflection work, receive observation by a DTD certified Doula, and review and analyze six key educational texts. Once doula students complete this training they can add official certified birth doula to their credentials, receive free listing in our doula directory for one year, and get an ID badge and lanyard for secure identification.
