Dear Medical Provider:

At New Beginnings Doula Training, in order to better support our students in their work, we have found it beneficial to collaborate with those within the local medical community.

To this end, we request our students find at least two medical professionals to complete this questionnaire. This also allows our trainers to better understand the birthing environment in which our students are working.

Please provide responses to the following questions, and then mail/email your response to the address provided at the end of this form.

Thank you for your willingness to work with our program in this collaborative effort.
