  • Description:
    DouLA-Birth Partners of Los Angeles was founded in 1995. It received DONA approval in 1996 which means completion of this program fulfills one requirement toward DONA certification as a birth doula. Presently, over 40 workshops have been held making it the most experienced training program in Southern California. The one-day introduction to labor support allows applicants to acquire the necessary basic information prior to the doula training. It covers the role of a doula and basics of support during the normal birth process. Those who want to pursue a career as a doula go on to attend Level II. Either completion of Level I or proof of completing observation of an approved Childbirth Education class is required prior to Level II training Birth educators and nurses with recent birth experience may come directly into Level II. The two-day workshop covers in-depth labor support strategies, working within the medical framework to improve women's birth experience, guidelines for doula contact with clients and tips for setting up practice as a doula. DONA Certification procedures are clarified. Local doula networking groups provide support for beginning doulas and continue with educational programs for established doulas.
