APPRENTICE DOULAS

Would you like to have a doula but are unable to make it fit your budget? ABQ Doulas works as mentors to pre-certified doulas who are not yet charging full price. These new birth and postpartum doulas are fully trained but working on gaining more hands-on experience with clients. They are not members of the ABQ Doula cooperative, but they will receive support and guidance from our doulas. Contact us to be put in touch with an apprenticing doula.

EXTRAS
