Becoming a Labor Doula
Becoming a Postpartum Doula
Steps to Certification!

We feel that mothers deserve special care before, during and after the birth of their baby and we want to make the process simple and inexpensive for you to begin helping them.

This page explains what it takes to become a labor doula and/or become a postpartum doula and receive the title of CLD - Certified Labor Doula and/or CPD - Certified Postpartum Doula from MaternityWise.



Step 1. Become a MaternityWise member. This step happens automatically when you sign up for a workshop or enroll in our Distance/Online Doula Program.

Membership is a yearly fee of $49USD.
(
click here for fees by country - currencies)
Initially, you will become a member as soon as you sign up, enrolling in a course and this fee is included in your enrollment.
You will receive your Membership Guide via email in PDF form.
Please help us in our commitment to less waste, by viewing it on your phone, tablet or computer to save paper. 

While this fee is taken care of at the start of your enrollment, you will be responsible to pay the $49 membership fee in January, every year thereafter to keep your enrolled student status and keep your credentials after certification. If you do not maintain your membership, your certification will no longer be valid and you will have to begin the process over again.


Step 2. Receive a Labor Doula Certification Packet or Postpartum Doula Certification Packet. After signing up and paying for your workshop or Distance Program, this will be emailed to you.
This packet will include all detailed instructions and assignments to attain certification. Your Certification Packet will come by email in PDF form. If you require a replacement or a hard copy Certification Packet, the fee is $29USD. Otherwise, it is free with your enrollment.

The forms you must print and fill out for certification are included.  If you would like to send us your book reviews, essays and opinion paper via email, we would love to accomodate. Please contact your trainer/mentor about sending it in a format compatible to her computer's operating system.


Step 3. Complete all Doula Certification Requirements including all forms, required reading and evaluations.
See Required Reading Lists.  


(The following step can be completed at any time while you're becoming a Doula - There are no pre-requisites other than Steps 1 & 2)
Step 4. Attend a MaternityWise Doula Training Workshop.
A list of training locations near you along with upcoming Doula Training Workshop dates are online for you to choose from.

If you want to become a doula, but there are no doula training workshops near you, y
ou have 2 options:
A. Host a training in your area, and get a discount for your help

B. Get Certified Online through our Distance Doula Training

If there aren't any Doula Training Workshops scheduled in your area, we can create one for you, and send a trainer to your area. There may be a minimum registration number, so help us promote the doula training to be sure there are enough paid registrations to run it. Often the minimum is 5 paid students. Please ask your trainer if you have questions about minimums.

Please pay MaternityWise for your Doula Training Workshop, when you register for the date(s) you'll attend. Registration information and payment must be received by the deadline set out for that training.

Step 5: Care for 3 families, each certification.
Have each mother (and partner, if available) fill out an evaluation form found in your Certification Packet.

You can use the same 3 families for Labor Doula Certification AND Postpartum Doula Certification.



Step 6. Submit your Application for Labor Doula Certification and/or Postpartum Doula Certification along with all required forms and evaluations.
Payment due with your Credentialling Application is $75USD.
Please send a check or money order with your application for this amount. If you host a training, you will have this fee waived.

You should allow 4-6 weeks for your doula certification to be processed, presented and approved by our Board. You will then receive a certificate to frame, and the credentials to sign behind your name, by mail within 2 weeks of approval.



Your Total Cost of MaternityWise
Doula Certification
is worth every penny, considering how your income will increase once you've received your credentials. Please also remember, there are many discounts that you may qualify for.

We are not like other organizations charging multiple fees that add up with shipping costs and other hidden fees before all is said and done. Our program is the most comprehensive, simply structured, and inexpensive program that exists. We're so glad you've found us.

No other certifying body will train you on the birth business fundamentals in depth, by trainers who own six-figure birth businesses. This is vital for you, specifically to start, market and grow your business on a shoestring budget!  We also teach you how to help your clients submit reimbursement claims to their health insurance for your services.

This is a very inexpensive way to begin serving mothers with a solid amount of knowledge as well as the credentials to prove it.

Thank you and we look forward to meeting you!

If you are currently a postpartum doula (accredited with any organization) and are interested in becoming one of our trainers, please contact Anne Croudace directly at 952-457-6506.
