Doula degree while in school for LVN


Hi, I'm new here.

Interested to know if anyone else was doing doula training so that they can start attending births and doing in home postnatal care, while still in school?

i just started MaternityWise and I really like it. Looking for some study buddies interested in L&D and postpartum. What program did you choose and why?

Doula and nursing school are a difficult combo. As a doula, you need to be available at any time, without a lot of advanced notice, for the births, and nursing schools are generally time-consuming with strict attendance policies.

There are ways to make it work, such as having a backup or working with a group where you're only on-call at times you're available. And postpartum is generally more flexible.
