QUESTION : LUSENET : Doula.Com General Discussion : One Thread

Most discussion is about birth doulas. I am interested in starting a PPDoula service. I live in ocean county NJ. I had my babies at home with midwives. I currently work on a maternity floor as a nurse. I need advice on what services to provide, what to charge,how to get started. Any advice out there???

Hi Diane. I thought your name looked familiar. I am the administrator on the ADN intranet. So what organization did you end up going with? You probably know that ADN has a special going on right now for birth and postpartum doula certification programs for $175 for the two. It only goes on for a couple more days. It is in celebration of International Doula Month. I already received my birth doula certification so I am going to wait on the postpartum since I have so many other things going on right now, but it is an excellent opportunity.

Let me know what organization you went with.
