Sometimes a doula needs a little help and not just from anyone, but someone with specific knowledge about our role or professional development. In our work, we know the value of having a trusted source of information. So that you can get the help you need, here is a list of your contacts at DONA International. You can find this list anytime at as well.

State/Provincial/Area Representatives
These wonderful volunteers are often the best first contact, particularly for questions related to your local area or DONA International in general. Check the full list at (under About Us: Board & Leadership) to find your local contact.

Regional Directors
Feel free to reach out to your Regional Director with your questions about policies, procedures, communications or events. They can also help connect you with the right person to address your needs if you aren’t sure who at DONA to contact.
