Developing a Doula Servicegreenspun.com : LUSENET : Doula.Com General Discussion : One Thread
I live in a relativly small community outside of the D.C area. The CNM'S in the area would like to help to create a Doula service for our poor and under-served clients that cannot afford such a service other-wise. We would like some help in gathering a developed curriculum for the purpose of pulling together this service. Our point of service is a hospital setting.

Hi Beverly, Sorry it took so long to get an answer to you! There is a book out that will guide you, it is called: Doula Programs: How to Start & Run a Private or Hospital-Based Program with Success! by Perez & Thelen. You can get it at www.childbirth.org/CEP.html. This is run by Paulina Perez who cowrote the book and is wonderful at helping doulas.
Take care- Kirsten
