Contemporary Doula International was created to provide modern, professional, evidenced based doula training that reaches far beyond the typical training available in most programs. Over the years, we have observed that many doulas who have completed a training program, have the passion but lack the skills to present themselves professionally and manage a business. Not only do we inspire our students, we are committed to providing them with education that allows them to work well in any environment, right from the start. Our comprehensive training prepares the doula to provide invaluable support that is respected and desired from both the client and their caregiver. It is our goal that CDI doulas become positive agents of change in their communities through passion, education, support and advocacy.
