Re: Doulas X post

The thing about the DONA process is, you can take small steps to get it done. Just for motivation, I would highly recommend you try and make arrangements to get to a training first, if you can. I love DONA as an organization and have been a DONA doula since 2004.

If you can't get to a training, then yes, do whatever you can. But I think the breastfeeding requirement can't be done until after the training to count? But I am not sure as that was not a requirement when went through the process.
