3. Attend a childbirth class

childbirth class


Attending a childbirth class will allow doulas to take an inside look at the information parents are receiving in birthing classes. Doulas will also be able to begin building relationships with childbirth educators who may refer them clients.

Participants must attend at least 1 childbirth class.

How to find a childbirth class to attend

– Call your local hospital and ask if you can observe class or pay to attend a class

– Ask doulas in your area if they know of classes

– Check with a local birthing center in your area for classes

– Search the internet; try websites like Yelp to find local classes
