Working as a doula needs to be financially viable and I’d like to see more doulas thinking about their doula work as a proper business.
A mentored doula is someone who has completed a Doula UK accredited preparation course and is working towards recognition through the Doula UK mentoring scheme.
One of the questions I’m often asked is: why is my doula preparation course so short? Is my four-day workshop, plus a pre and post course module really enough to get someone who has no other formal training ready to begin their career as a doula?

I am very grateful to have studied with a great teacher, David Nassim in the last year. David’s website Health Instinct has a wealth of articles that he has written, a shop where you can buy his books and also a list of links to some very interesting sites across the globe.
