According to Doula UK,

“a Mentored Doula has completed a Doula UK approved Preparation Course and is involved in Doula UK’s Recognition Process. This means that she has a Mentor providing support and supervision within a framework for reflective practice until she has gained sufficient experience to become a Recognised Doula.”

As a doula, whether mentored or recognised, I will be learning and growing within my role. I feel really lucky to have not only my professional but my personal experiences to have gotten me started in my doula journey.
