    I’ve been very interested in becoming a doula, but due to COVID, in my area nobody is allowed in the birthing unit except for the parents of the coming baby. With no exceptions to birthing support. What am I to do?

      Hi Arianne, yes, this has been a problem for many doulas! If you are a member of a doula professional organization, I would encourage you to reach out to them to see what their protocols are for certification during COVID. Minnesota Birth Center is happy to allow a client’s partner and one additional support person at births, so it is a great way to gain certifying births. Best wishes to you!

      Hi Cynthia, certification can come through a variety of organizations including DONA, CAPPA, etc. Minnesota Birth Center doesn’t have a certification program, but our internship program can be a great way to attend the number of certifying births you usually need to complete your certification. I hope that is helpful!
