Finding a Birth or Postpartum Doula Trainer –
What You Should Know


All trainers listed are approved and in good standing with DONA International.

To be DONA-approved, each trainer is an active DONA certified doula, and has completed extensive prerequisites, a trainer workshop, and curriculum evaluation and approval. For more information on the approval process see Birth Doula Trainer Requirements and Postpartum Doula Trainer Requirements.

All trainers are independent – not employees of, or paid by, DONA International. Each trainer (or her designate or sponsor) handles the workshop registration.

DONA International-Approved Birth and Postpartum Workshops
All DONA-approved birth doula workshops provide a minimum of 16 hours of instruction. All DONA-approved postpartum doula workshops are a minimum of 27 hours. Some workshops are longer to allow for additional topics or exercises related to doula work. For a listing of currently scheduled workshops visit Find a Workshop.

Each trainer sets her own fees and refund policies. The cost of a workshop reflects what is included in the workshop, such as the number of hours, meals, lodging, materials, etc. Some trainers offer fee reductions and/or scholarships.

An Introduction to Childbirth for Doulas workshop may be offered prior to a birth doula workshop. This Intro fulfills the childbirth education requirement for birth doula certification.

A Breastfeeding Course may be offered prior to a birth or postpartum doula workshop, which fulfills the breastfeeding requirement for certification.
