I personally sort of fell into the job. I was supporting so many friends and family. I was very active in the birth community and started attending births with a doula friend during my certification. I put the word out there that I was available as a back up and those were my first clients. I marketed myself to childbirth educators who allowed me to speak to their classes. I also went to meet n greets for many professionals that are held around town. Oh, and I met many folks through ICAN.

One of our best resources in Ga is the Ga Birth Network. It has a mentor program that helps prepare you during the process.

And I'm sure this doesn't have to be said, but Facebook. It's free and it's great for networking. It helped me tremendously. There are so many facebook groups out there to help you get to know all the birthy folks in the community. If you network yourself well in the community, then you'll get lots of referrals.
