Choose the best way for you to meet your doula

 

doula-portlandAbout our Doula Teams

Our birth doulas work in pairs, meeting you in your home, going on-call for you at the time of hire (for those rare chances of baby coming early), and offering you the comfort and added knowledge  of combined years of experience to draw from.

Both of your doulas will meet with you once at your home to help learn about the best way to support you and your support person/people. You’ll be able to spend more time and check in with your doulas when  you attend our Pregnancy Discussion Groups on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of the month. (Don’t worry, if you can’t make it to our groups, you can add on another in-home meeting with your doulas if you would like).

At the time of labor, one of your doulas will join you in labor. This could be at home or at the place you are birthing. We can support you whether you birth at home with a midwife, at a hospital, or a birth center.  You will get the benefit of continuity of care as your doula stays with you through your entire birth and shortly afterward. Your doulas will follow up with you after the birth and remain available for questions and resources.

We are proud to that our doulas have life balance with time off by working in pairs. This allows them to be present and well-rested, in addition to having less stress because you already know your back-up labor doula.
