Erykah Badu Training As A Midwife

Posted by Claire Shefchik on September 6, 2011 4:54 PM

Erykah Badu is training to become a midwife, People Magazine reported in an interview with the singer.

Badu, 40, is currently working as a doula, providing expectant mothers with Reiki treatments, massage and support during childbirth, all at no charge. She said she was inspired after helping a friend through a difficult childbirth in 2001, and told the magazine her clients call her "Erykah Badoula."

Doulas do not provide medical care, but the "On and On" and "The Cider House Rules" singer and actress is a spokeswoman for the International Center for Traditional Childbearing. She aims to get her professional certification so she can open natural birthing centers in inner city communities.
