What’s a doula do, you ask? A doula is often mistaken with a midwife or referred to as a birth coach, childbirth educator, or pregnancy concierge. This is an incomplete definition. A doula is an assistant, but there are many different types of doulas. Read more about Antepartum, Birth, and Postpartum Doulas.

There are dozens of doula training organizations. Not all doulas are created equally. 

It’s important to ask questions when determining if the doula you’d like to hire may fit your expectations and is the right fit for you!

As you transition, we provide continuity of care from home to hospital and convert the medical setting to a homier environment.
