Getting Started

Part 1 -
Begin the journey with confidence and support! Don’t know where to begin – this will be your step by step plan to success. Simple and easy to accomplish! We will cover the basics of getting your business started, working within the doula community, organizing your personal life, paperwork for the state & government(setting up your files) and help you identify and set realistic goals for your business. Begin working on that certification – step by step. There is so much you can do BEFORE you have your births. Volunteering and networking will sky rocket your plans – find out how & where to start. Learn which trainings to budget for and which websites you’ll find a wealth of information on. Need a mentor? This class will help you find the right one for you. Get your foundation in place and you’ll feel so confident when taking that first birth!
Registration for the Finishing series classes closes 1 week prior to each class and each class has a cap on how many we can take. Sign up early! We need time to get handouts etc. in order for each class.

Must have completed a training with a certifying organization. (DONA, CAPPA, To Labor, Pro Doula, Madriella, SDB).

If you are a Hearts and Hands volunteer doula from UCSD and are interested in participating in the BEC doula matching referral program, you need to go through a certifying organization training first. We recommend the DONA training with Gerri Ryan.

This class is for doulas in training, working toward their certification.
