Frequently asked questions
What are requirements I need to meet to become an Alimus doula?
All our Alimus doulas will undergo a background check. We further require that you have been trained or certified from one of the Alimus approved doula organizations and have supported multiple births since becoming a doula. If you don’t meet these entry requirements yet, we can help set you up with the appropriate training and volunteer program so that you can qualify to become an Alimus doula.
What if I have not been formally certified as a doula?
If you are passionate about supporting mothers and improving birth outcomes, we will help match you with the right program so you can meet all of Alimus requirements. Alimus can help pay for the training program up-front and will deduct expenses from your payments over the course of your first five births.
I don’t want to accept mothers during the summer when my kids are at home. Is this possible?
Yes, you may choose to not support mothers during specific times of the year (e.g., summer break or planned vacation times).
When joining Alimus, will I be a contractor or employee?
Currently, all our Alimus doulas are contractors.
How will I get paid?
Alimus will pay part of your fee when you are matched with a family and the remainder when you have completed your postpartum check in and completed the feedback survey.
Is there a maximum number of births I can attend every month?
To prevent conflicting births and allow enough time to engage with your moms-to-be, we ask that Alimus doula cover a maximum of 6 births/month.
