Meet the Doulas

 

"If a doula were a drug, it would be unethical not to use it."

~ John H Kennell, MD, pediatrician, author, 

and "father" of the modern doula movement

 

 

What is a Doula, and why would you want one?

What if you already have a husband or partner who plans to be actively involved?

How do you find the right doula for you and your family?

Can you afford one? Yes!

  •   Learn the benefits of doula services

  •   Understand how dads/partners and doulas work together

Doulas working in the Greater South Bay Area and Peninsula will be on hand to answer your questions, offer personalized referrals, and represent some of the wonderful variety of personalities, ages, backgrounds, and skills you can find in a birth or postpartum doula. Time is also provided for parents to meet individual doulas in brief "get acquainted" interviews. Did you know that studies¹ show the benefits of working with a doula may include:

  •   shorter labor lengths

  •   reduction in requests for epidural

  •   decreased use of forceps or vacuum

  •   increased confidence in partner

  •   reduction in cesarean rates

  •   higher breastfeeding success rates
