Postpartum Doula Recertification

Postpartum Doula Inactive Status

Doulas unable to support three families during the three-year certification period, but who wish to maintain their certification, may choose Inactive Status. Though certification will be kept up to date, the doula will not be listed as a DONA International-certified doula on DONA International’s referral list.

To recertify as a postpartum doula with inactive status you must:

  • Maintain continuous membership in DONA International.
  • Obtain a minimum of 18 contact hours of continuing education approved by a recognized organization in a birth and/or parenting related field. Alternatives to recognized continuing education may be acceptable.
  • Complete and submit the DONA International Application/Affidavit Form by the recertification date.

Submit your Inactive Status Recertification Fee to the DONA International Certification Committee.
