• Inactive Status

    We understand that life can be full of unexpected events and surprises.  We have developed an inactive status option for certified doulas who decide to step away from their work for a while.  This option is only available for NAPS certified doulas.

    • Qualified reasons for applying: pregnancy, sabbatical, or unforeseen circumstances that prevent you from providing doula services
    • Doula will be removed from the referral list while on inactive status
    • Certification period freezes at it’s current status at the time membership is notified of your inactive status
    • Membership renewal fees will be reduced to $50.00 per year, no prorating
    • Continuous membership must be maintained
    • Continuing education must be maintained. Two CE credits will be needed each year. No NAPS event is necessary.
