Hire a certifying doula to attend your birth!

When finances are a concern, families can opt to work with a doula in process of certification.

Why hire a student doula?

A student doula has completed the 18 hour in person training class, which includes hands-on training in labor support skills. The doula may have also completed some or all of the required reading and is in process of completing certification (which includes some online classes, assignments, and exams).

What does a student doula cost?

Doulas in process of certification set their own fees, but they often charge about half to two-thirds of the average rate of certified doulas. Fees vary depending on experience and what other skills the doula brings. Barter is another option for affording a doula, and many doulas welcome such payment arrangements.

What areas do the student doulas serve?

I train doulas from all over Colorado. While the majority of my students live in and around the Denver/Boulder metro areas, I do have a number of students in other parts of the state.
