Due to COVID-19 is your local hospital restricting admission during your loved ones birth? Childbirth Professionals International (CPI) can help if the hospital in your area is requiring those attending births on the maternity floor be trained or certified doulas.
CPI offers a simple quick doula training program to meet hospital requirements. This training can help you gain admission as a doula to support a family member giving birth at the hospital.
***However, be sure to double check the requirements as each hospital has their own guidelines.
The training is available online. The Doula Birth and Postpartum course has 15 modules and is 16 hours of content broken into 5-10 minute increments. The course is self paced. Students can complete the course in days or weeks.
