I get this question in various forms, so I thought I’d answer it here.
Short answer: yes, you will be certified through New Beginnings Doula Training.
Because doulas are not medically trained personnel, certification is not required to work as a doula. Anyone can work as a doula regardless of whether or not they have been certified to do so. What a certification course such as New Beginnings Doula Training offers is the knowledge that you have received a good education for both you and your clients.
My course work, which is design to take approximately nine months to complete, provides you with much more information than does better known organizations, such as DONA (which has been confirmed to me by DONA certified doulas). Because DONA is more well known, it may be more accepted in certain situations. As far as working on your own, you will be prepared well through my course to act as a competent and professional doula. Such training and experience would be accepted anywhere.
