Will I make a good Doula?

Will I make a good Doula?

I often hear this question from students and potential students. It is a good question to ask yourself, as you would with any professional career you embark upon. Being a doula is an incredibly fulfilling career! It can also be a wonderful way to make a living and make a difference in your community.

Will I make a good doula?

Do you believe parents deserve the best birth care?

Do you want to make a difference in maternal and infant mortality?

Do you possess a professional work ethic?

Do you have empathy and compassion?

Do you just love pregnancy?

Are you:

Compassionate, respectful and thoughtful.

Non-judgmental and believe in each person having the birth they desire.

Open to other’s differences, and have a willingness to help find solutions.

Willing to listen and learn from every client.

Believe that you can support your client.
