Labor Doula Certification Requirement #2 – CHECK!

Because I have chosen to do the Distance Program, I have significantly more requirements to complete than the Traditional Program does.  The first requirement is to be a member of CAPPA.  I became a member of CAPPA on January 2nd this year.  So, check.  :-)

The second requirement is to write a letter explaining why I want to be a doula and why the distance program is the best option for me.  I completed this requirement tonight.  So, check.  :-)

The third requirement is to choose and read five books from the CAPPA required reading list … so far, I have read four (as you may know) and am now halfway through my fifth book.  This fifth book is also the first book for my Postpartum Doula Certification.  My focus now is going to be to finish this book and then I will take the time to watch and review all of the necessary videos for this program.  I know that I had said I was going to work on completing my Postpartum Doula Certification first, buy my first client is fast approaching her due date, so I want to make sure I’m well versed to act as her Labor Doula and then as her Postpartum Doula … once I have completed my work with her, I will set my Labor Doula Certification aside and focus on and complete my Postpartum Doula Certification.  Then, with that, I hope to be able to get my name out there and pull in the additional clients that I will need to complete my Labor Doula Certification on time.
