These are the first step in becoming certified as a birth doula through Dona International, the largest doula organization in the world.  If both classes are taught you would receive a certificate for Introduction to Childbirth Education and a certificate for Birth Doula Workshop too!  If you attend the BF 3-hour class you will receive another certificate which would be required for certification through Dona.
