Any Doulas?

I have started looking into becoming a doula and getting certified through DONA. If you have gone through the process can you tell me about your experience, how much it cost you after you were done and how long it took you?

My DH supports me in doing this, but I want to get personal experiences before starting.


Thanks!!!!

I was a doula for my friend, so no certification.  Likewise, MY doula was a friend, and her 16 year old daughter at the time was the photographer.  When she was twelve, she was her mother's doula for her twin brother and sister.

I've thought about getting certification; I hope you get some good responses.

A doula is basically a labor coach/support person.
