DONA International Advanced Doulas
Initial certification with DONA International is the first marker of excellence in the doula industry.
For the most highly skilled and dedicated doulas, we also offer the Advanced Doula designation: AdvCD(DONA) for birth doulas and AdvPCD(DONA) for postpartum doulas.
Initiated in 2015, the Advanced Doula designation honors DONA certified birth and postpartum doulas who have made major contributions to DONA International, to the doula profession, and in the maternal-child field. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis with an annual deadline in May, when we celebrate International Doula Month.
We would love to honor you with the Advanced Doula designation if you meet the criteria! Download an application for more information.
