A Postpartum Doula

A postpartum doula certified by DONA International is designated by the initials PCD(DONA). DONA International has the highest certification standards for doulas worldwide. When a doula has earned the credential of PCD(DONA), it shows that the doula has met all the requirements of our rigorous certification program.

A doula designated as an AdvPCD(DONA) has applied for and been selected through a rigorous review process, including but not limited to, being certified for a minimum number of years and having made major contributions to the promotion and advancement of the mission and purpose of DONA International, the doula profession and in the maternal-child field.

Research evidence shows that the quality services of a postpartum doula can ease the transition that comes with the addition of a baby to a family, improve parental satisfaction and reduce the risk of mood disorders.
