Postpartum Doula Recertification

Postpartum Doula Active Status

Follow these steps to recertify as a DONA International postpartum doula with active status:

1. Maintain continuous membership in DONA International.

  • Certified doulas must maintain continuous membership in DONA International.
  • To verify that your membership is current, check the date that is printed in the upper right corner of your mailing label on the International Doula magazine.
  • When applying for recertification, a certified doula whose membership has lapsed must pay reinstatement fees. Please see our Lapsed Membership Policy for details.

2. Work with a minimum of three postpartum clients and complete the DONA Doula Verification Form. Required documentation:

  • Evaluations from three postpartum doula clients.
  • Postpartum Doula Verification Form with both mother/partner signatures confirming a minimum of 8 hours working together.

3. Obtain a minimum of 18 contact hours of continuing education approved by a recognized organization in a birth and/or parenting related field. Submit all relevant paperwork. Alternatives to recognized continuing education may be acceptable.

4. By recertification date, complete and submit the DONA International Application/Affidavit for Doula Recertification form, which verifies that you have met all recertification requirements and all necessary documentation.

5. Submit your recertification fee to the DONA Certification Committee.
