Hi Bebu - here from my blog - its wonderfullymade (aka Nicole). I was a lay doula for 4 years before becoming certified when I received my Bradley Method CBE certification.

Honestly, I have been through the DONA workshop and have seen the certification package/workbook for ICEA... DONA, ICEA, and AAHCC (Bradley) all didn't teach me anything that I hadn't learned 'in the field'. Out of the three, though, if you are starting from scratch and don't have any/much experience, I would recommend DONA.

There are other routes though. As I said, I was a lay doula previous to my certification. I took a few classes on acupressure from a local Eastern Medicine Homeopathic Doctor (acupuncturist). I also went under the tutelage of a chiropractor skilled in working with pregnant women and newborns - learned TONS of anatomy and physiology that way along with how to help the body help itself and reduce birth trauma to the mother and baby.

In addition, my MIL is a massage therapist, and I sat in on her classes and her sessions - doing some hands on as she thought right. Then I asked a local doula if I could assist her for awhile. After all of that, when I finally DID certify, I felt the training they gave to be too elementary. I ended up giving THEM some tips, tricks, and techniques.

I see you are in MI, where in MI? I lived in GR for 7 years.
