Re: If you want/have a doula
For me: I started looking on the DONA page, just because that was the easiest to get started on. But when it came down to picking who we wanted, certification didn't matter at all to us - EXCEPT making sure she was a certified lactation consultant. As for the birth part, it was more important that we "clicked" and that I was 100% comfortable with her and felt she brought good skills to the table than if she had certified with someone.
