Continuing Education

We believe in career-long learning and growth for doulas.

DONA International members are dedicated to keeping up on evidence-based information.  DONA International certified doulas are required to recertify every three years.  Our recertification process ensures that the doula remains proficient in the field, as well as keeping their skills and knowledge base up-to-date. Consider joining us for an annual conference. It’s always an inspiring time of connection and learning! You can also connect here with business webinars, general practice webinars and a variety of DONA approved advanced doula trainings. Check it out!

We’re so excited to bring our 2018 educational event, in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
