In September, 2016 I completed my DONA approved training through Bini Birth. It was a joy to be trained by Ana Paula Markel, the founder of Bini Birth and the current president of DONA.
Since then I have completed most of the requirements needed to be officially DONA certified and hope to complete the process by Spring ‘18. DONA International is the leader in evidence-based doula training, certification and continuing education. I am excited and honored to be a part of their community!
Throughout the past year, I have gained experience accompanying laboring women at home, in birthing centers and at hospitals.
