In fact, I had a blast going through my training 5 years ago. I'm DONA certified but if I had it to do-over again I'd go with ALACE. I'm an ALACE-trained CBE and I found them to be much more thorough. There is a pretty extensive reading list you'll need to complete before taking the workshop. Once you complete the training workshop you'll need to line up your training births. With DONA I needed 3 births plus evaluations from the docs, midwives, and the mother about my performance as a doula. It was pretty easy for me as I was already working with a mw at a birth center teaching CBE classes. If you have pregnant friends make arrangements to attend their births. Call a local crisis pregnancy center. Put flyers up at OB offices, health food stores. All of these things can help you get those first 3 clients.Hello
How difficult it is to become a doula? ANYONE?
It is a lot of fun and so worth it!! Good luck and if you need any more info I'm be happy to chat w/ you via pm.

Feb 3, '05Joined: Feb '05; Posts: 2Hello,
My name is Nick and I am just starting my education for an ADN. I am in my first semester and doing well so far. Looking forward to joining you all in the field someday.
I am married (wife is also a nursing student). I have three children, we flew my wifes mother in to help us with them while we attend school and study, that helps a lot and I feel eternally grateful to her for doing that for us.
I am the only male student in my classes and this is the first time the university has offered an ADN so the jury is out on whether or not it prepares its students, that is a little scary, but I can compensate with my desire to learn and I usually try to learn or read more than I have to to be prepared for the worst case scenario.
Anyway, I will be posting regularly for the next couple of years, especially because my school doesnt have upper-level students to glean information from (since it's a new program).
Feb 3, '05Joined: Feb '05; Posts: 12Hey everyone I am in my last semester of an ADN program at a community college in Ky. Will graduate in May 2005. Been a long three years but I have loved every minute of it. Wish everyone luck with their dreams.
Feb 7, '05Joined: Dec '04; Posts: 60; Likes: 1Hi every-one,
I am Jennifer! I am an A.D.N. student at Faulkner State in Alabama. I hope to graduate in May 2006. Therefore I am in my 2nd semester of nursing school. I am taking med-surg, test success, and adv. Pharmacology. I am in a new program, thus the instructors are very hard on us. This web-site has been great for me when I feel down to keep me going. I also love the post that make me laugh... such as 'you know your in nursing school when' :hatparty:
Feb 8, '05Joined: Feb '05; Posts: 11Hi everybody. I'm courtney, i'm 19 (20 in 3 months!) and I going for my BSN in Indiana. I'm in my 4th semester. Just have 2 more years to go. I'm hoping to become an OB nurse someday. But who knows, that might change as I go through clinicals in different departments.
Feb 10, '05Joined: Dec '04; Posts: 222; Likes: 15Hey Everybody-
I'm 24 and I'm in an accelerated BSN program. I'm in semester 2 out of 4 right now and I'll be graduating in September 2005. I'm busy all the time but I love it. It's nice to be around here!
Feb 11, '05Joined: Feb '05; Posts: 31; Likes: 1I'm a 32 year old ADN student in my 3rd (out of 4) clinical rotation. I'm enrolled at NSU in Shreveport, Louisiana. I'm married with no kids. Having kids after school, hopefully - tho' that seems to be getting farther and farther away!
Nice to meet everyone!
