I already completed a doula workshop
We accept participants who have taken a doula workshop from a different organization, but never completed their certification and now wish to become certified doulas. Your training workshop must have been within the last 3 years; email your attendance certificate from the doula training you took. Pay the transfer fee of $95. Next you would complete all the other requirements of the standard doula program, starting with step 2 through step 5.
I am certified with a different organization
You may hold dual certification with CPI or transfer from a different organization. If you are currently a certified doula within the last two years we only require that you document 8 contact hours to become CPI (Childbirth Professionals International) certified and verify assisting at 2 births or providing postpartum support.
Contact hours are accepted from different organizations. Transfer fee is $95. There is no transfer fee if contact hours are from CPI.

2. Email a copy of your current doula certificate
3. Email a copy of your contact hours
