Does anyone out there know anything about doula training? I have checked the San Antonio Doula website and there is nothing there about training to become a doula. I am very interested in this field. Did anyone of you have a doula at the time of your pregnancy and deliveries. What was your experience? Can you help me get in touch with one? I want to be sure that I am connected with a reputable and certified agency.
Thank you.

I highly recommend going to - they have wonderful forums where you can connect with others and find out about ALL of your training options!!!

I am doing my certification though ChildBirth International ( and they have a pretty good chart comparing their programs to others:

You do not actually have to be certified to be a doula and/or to charge families for your services. It's totally up to you!

I certified with ALACE - you can find them on the web, though I am not certified any longer. Luna at (a mamasource mom) runs a training in Austin.

Good luck!

I did my doula training with San Antonio Birth Doulas through Catholic Charities. My 3 day old son went with me. He liked it :). Call Norma Haro or Suzanne DeLeon at Catholic Charities. THey do one in September, if I'm not mistaken.

Good luck!
