correspondence at home : LUSENET : Doula.Com General Discussion : One Thread

I was wondering, I live in a rural area. Is there any way to start on becoming a doula through correspondences classes? I live in Fort Leonard Wood, Mo.

Thank You, Monique

Hi Monique- Most of the training that you do is in your home- you will just need to attend a long weekend workshop for most of the certifying organizations. You will have books to read at home before the workshop and stuff to do afterwards so as long as you can get away for a few days you are all set! Read some of the other discussions on about certifying orgs and decide who you'd like to go with!

Take care- Kirsten
