DONA International Postpartum Doula Certification Requirements

You will provide postpartum support to 3 families and get 6 evaluations completed. (2 evaluations are required for each family, one from mother and from another support person in home) Click HERE for certification requirements, instructions, and guidelines. After completing the requirements, all certification paperwork will be sent to DONA.  Your certification will be awarded by DONA International.

The doula training includes all required educational hours to become a trained postpartum doula. The school will try to connect the new doulas with other community doulas, if available. Once the student has completed the training, she/he can start attending births for pay or volunteer while working on certification.

 Once the doula completes the certification process, she/he will be eligible to apply to become a Tricare approved doula provider and currently in 20 States, a Medicaid approved doula provider.
