Birth Doula Studies Program Structure
The Birth Doula Studies Online Program consists of three online modules as well as practicum assignments, all of which are taken to complete the (non-accredited) Continuing Education Birth Doula Studies Certificate.
The Birth Doula Studies Online Program, including practicum, is approximately 115 hours and the online access is available almost 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The time commitment is a minimum of 5 hours per week of online course work, as well as reading, assignments, etc., and the instructor will advise you in advance of assignment due dates.
The physical aspects of the program are related to the practicum components and require additional time over and above the minimum 5 hours a week. Practicum components consist of doing research, securing volunteer experience and attending births in your area.
