During my pregnancy, I got very interested in child birth and pregnancy. I've always had the plan of going to university to become a nurse, and wanting to work in maternity. But I have been thinking for months now about becoming a midwife and/or doula...

Is there anybody in Canada here that has gone through this? What certification/degrees do you have to go through?

not sure for Canada, but good luck!!

I've thought about it too... my midwife even commented at my last appointment that I'd make a good midwife

Becoming a doula in canada is the same as becoming a doula in the us

From what I understand- midwifery in canada is very hard to get into... their schools have way more applicants then spots available, and you have to relocate for clinical placements. I don't know if they have a direct entry way into midwifery, studying locally and learning about homebirths.... but I've never heard of that.

I wasn't sure if there was more certifications in different countries.


Yeah it seems like it's a hard program to get into. I think there's only one university that offers it in my province to.

I'm still researching =)
