Doula Practise Test

Doula is a trained professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to their client before, during and shortly after childbirth to help them achieve the healthiest, most satisfying experience possible.

Doula training is the necessary education for starting a career as a professional doula. Doula trainings are sometimes referred to as doula workshops and they usually take place in a comfortable and casual setting. During the global pandemic, in person doula training has been put on hold and has been replaced with live, interactive video conferencing (Zoom). An in-person doula training (or Zoom training) is typically 2 or 3 days in length, and covers the following doula related topics:

  • Hospital birth and home birth
  • Hormones associated with labor
  • Anatomy and cervical change during labor
  • The emotional impact of labor and birth
  • The stages of labor and how doulas support each phase
  • Physical comfort measures and emotional support
  • Bishop Score, Induction of labor, and medical interventions
  • Cesarean birth and emergency situations
  • The Golden Hour and how to support it
  • Breastfeeding 
  • Family bonding
  • Newborn assessments and medications
  • The client/doula relationship
  • Doula self-care
  • Doula contracts and business basics

Take this test from real doula exam questions. You have 50 questions and 1 hour to complete it.

Good luck!
