The Doulas

You have enough to do, and a lengthy search for the right postpartum doula is not something you need to add to your list.  Either your plate is full preparing for the birth and preparing your home for the baby, OR the baby has already arrived and a research project to find the right doula is more than you can handle. Finding the right postpartum doula with our help can be a smooth and easy process while also remaining deeply personal and personalized. Maybe you know exactly what you’re looking for, or maybe you have no idea what type of support you’ll need or how much. That’s why you start by having a conversation with our agency director, who can ask you some important questions about your plan for the postpartum period, your family’s needs and preferences, and help you get clear on what services will best support you during this monumental time in your family’s life. Then, because our director works closely with every doula, she can hand pick someone for you and/or send a few doulas to your home for you to meet in person to assure your comfort level. See below to learn a little bit about each of the doulas now!

Our doulas respect all types of families and the variety of approaches they use, rather than impose any judgment or agenda. They are each CPR Certified, Insured, and trained by a reputable doula training organization such as CAPPA, ProDoula, or DONA International, in addition to the many specialty area trainings they continue to pursue to enhance their services. Doulas can work during the day or overnight. For more about what services they can provide for your family, see our Postpartum Doula Services page and our Other Services page.
