I’ve decided to call this newest certification, Super Doula! To me it sounds more marvelous. This certification is brand-new for me. I just became certified on July 11th, 2018. This certification is an honor that they bestow on few doulas. I offer a heart-felt thank you to all of my clients and the readers of “Doulas’ Guide to Birthing Your Way”!
