Anyone can provide emotional support to a laboring woman (AKA birth doula). Moms, grammas, husbands, brothers, BFFs...
To be a professional doula, a woman might like to be certified, but it's not required. How successful this doula becomes may/may not have to do with her certification, accreditation, professionalism...
There are different paths. :-)
What sounds good for you?
