Postpartum Doula Recertification

Overview

Your DONA International postpartum doula certification is valid for three (3) years, and you must recertify prior to expiration. You have the option to recertify with active status or inactive status. Active status DONA certified postpartum doulas are listed on our web site’s on-line referral listing, while inactive status doulas do not receive referrals through DONA International. Inactive status allows DONA certified postpartum doulas to maintain their certification even if not currently offering postpartum doula services.

Effective October 1, 2011: Three (3) original evaluations from your postpartum clients (= mothers) and the postpartum doula verification form are to be included in your application for postpartum doula recertification.

Click here to access the complete packet of Postpartum Doula Recertification Requirements in PDF format, which includes instructions for recertifying with active or inactive status, continuing education requirements, options for alternative continuing education contact hours, all recertification forms and instructions for changing from inactive to active status.

Access the individual PDF documents and forms, plus other supporting documents that you may need for recertification, on the sidebar.

It is recommended that you submit your completed application for recertification two (2) to three (3) months in advance of your current certification expiration date. Allow eight (8) weeks for processing.

Please note that a lapse in membership during your three (3) year certification period may result in revocation of certification.
