Re-certification Options

At DoulaVersity we strive to balance the struggles some students have with re-certification and our mission to list the world's finest doulas on our website. 

Our primary goal with re-certification to is ensure that our doula's are continuing to further their skills and knowledge throughout their careers.  We have three very simple options to maintain your DoulaVersity certification:

Option #1:
Sign code of ethics and grievance policy
Attend 1 birth, and provide self evaluation form, and client evaluation form
Read 1 book and submit book report summary
Take 1 advanced training class or course (see our list of options and requirements here)

Option#2 (for those who don't like to read):

Sign code of ethics and grievance policy
Attend 2 births, and provide self evaluation forms, and client evaluation forms for each client
Take 2 advanced training classes/courses (see our list of options and requirements here)

Option #3 (for those who didn't support any births)

Sign code of ethics and grievance policy
Take 2 advanced training classes/courses (see our list of options and requirements here)
Read 3 books and submit book report summary for each


Book reading:  Books can be anything related to pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding or newborn care

Fee for re-certification:  $75
Students have the option to break up the payments into $25 a year. 
Students have the option to pay what they can one year, skip a year and pay the remaining fee upon re-certification. 
Referral Fee:  Students who are members of the Doula Connect Program can use their referral fees to pay for the re-certification if they would like.

Students also have the option to submit their re-certification requirements at any time prior to their 3 year anniversary (and pay re-certification fee by due date). 
Students who do not pay the fee and submit requirements by their due date, will no longer be listed as a certified doula through DoulaVersity.
