Why a membership?
DTI certification is for life. But after you get certified, we want to be there to support your doula business! Membership is not about titles, it’s about resources. Resources like access to learning labs, exposure for your business through the Doula Locator, tools you can use with clients, nifty discounts for events and free shipping from the DTI shop (Have you seen the tote? It’s a cute tote).
When and how do I pay?
It’s easy. After you’ve registered for a training, we’ll send you instructions about getting started with membership. Once you’ve paid the annual membership fee of $157, we’ll shoot you a confirmation email. We’ll cover it from there – the payment processes automatically each year on the day you originally paid!
Why am I getting charged the fee in the beginning of the program?
So you can jump right into the program with immediate access to membership benefits! Right off the bat, you’ll be able to watch videos from our Expert Affiliate Collection, create a Doula Locator profile to kickstart your personal brand and career, and get established in the doula community by joining our exclusive Facebook group and receiving our membership newsletter.
If I don’t pay the membership fee will I lose my certification?
No! Membership is separate from certification. You’re certified for life, no worries.
Do I need to certify to be a DTI Member?
Nope! The only requirement for DTI Membership is completion of an in-person or online DTI2 training and payment of the annual fee.
What if I am already on the Doula Locator and want to become a DTI Member?
We welcome you to make the switch! Email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss a prorated fee for membership.
What if I am a different kind of birth professional or trained with a different doula organization, can I be a DTI Member?
DTI Membership is only available for DTI-trained doulas, but there’s good news: We have The DTI Alliance for you!
