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:  $150
Students have the option to break up the payments into $50 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:  We offer a $25 credit towards your re-certification for every student you refer who enrolls with us! 
(Contact us for more information).  Your recertification fee could potentially pay for itself! 

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.
