Birth Doula Training Additional Information
Serve 2 clients - You must provide 2 prenatal visits, attend the birth, and conduct 1 postpartum follow-up. 1 client may be a cesarean birth but should be an unplanned cesarean. This is not to say that someone having a planned cesarean birth does not need a doula, but there is more physical work involved with a planned vaginal birth that requires some more hands-on experience than supporting a cesarean birth. There will be a section on supporting clients through cesarean that should be fairly sufficient in preparing you for the experience.
