Phase VII: Practicum

After a final evaluation, each doula will then enter into the phase of training where theory and practice transform into active application in the community.  In addition to hands-on practice of techniques throughout the online training process and in home-based assignments, you will be required to support 3 women during their prenatal, labor, birth and postpartum periods for a total of at least 20 hours.  You will be required to submit written documentation of each doula experience according to a provided template.

You will also receive guidance and sample forms that you can utilize to develop the business side of your doula practice.  During this phase, you will be expected to complete your Adult and Neonatal CPR certification if you have not already done so.
