The Future Doulas branch of the Apprentice Program begins with an 8-week classroom training which includes information about the following:
Following the 8-week training, Apprentice Doulas attend at least 3 client cases (including 2 prenatal visits, the labor and birth, and 2 postpartum visits for each client) with a Mentor Doula from our organization. When our Apprentice Doulas have attended 3 mentored births, they will begin to receive referrals for births through our organization. A minimum of 6 client cases in full must be completed for graduation from the program. Participants in the Future Doulas branch of the Apprentice Program also receive individualized mentoring regarding complex cases and doula business management.
