I have spent lots of time online researching the Doula & Midwifery fields, childbirth, breastfeeding, etc. Here are some of the many sites I have come across. I'll be adding lots more, enjoy -LISA

Lisa's Favorites

This is a link to Debbie Lavin's site. She holds both DONA & CAPPA approved trainings. I attended her birth doula training & was very pleased. Not only did she go over the "art" of working as a doula,  she went over the buisness aspect, as well as other topics not found in the typical doula training. I highly recomend attending one of her trainings, even if you are not going the certified route.

Ok, here's my 2 cents... I would explore all of the different certifying options out there before deciding. Then chose the one that fits you best. Also, remember you don't have to certify to work as a doula, but it does help document the fact that you are seeking / gaining experience & actively pursuing continuing education.There are other certifying organizations not listed on this chart that are worth looking into. Here's some that are not on the chart:
