Doulas listed on our website do not work for MBRN or the Local Chapter.  We support a mother's right to choose the type of birth that is right for her - un-medicated, medicated, cesarean, VBAC, home birth, hospital birth, or birth center birth.  Every woman will choose birth practices that she feels is right for her and regardless of those choices, our goal is to support her during this incredibly important time.  There are variations in philosophies and practices in the professionals listed in our member guide.  The doulas within our network are trained by a national or internationally recognized organization.  It is the responsibility of each consumer to verify the credentials of each professional.  MBRN encourages consumers to interview professionals to determine which professional is the right person for their needs.  Some doulas may provide volunteer services while others will charge a fee for service, MBRN does not regulate a doulas' fee but the network does encourage doulas participating in this program to consider each families' situation and circumstances.

I'm Faith Barrett DeBolt, and I'm a new, certifying childbirth doula in the KMC area of Germany. My profession as a doula is to provide emotional, physical and informational support to a mother and her partner before, during and after the birth transition. My mission as a doula is to help empower women with a birth experience that makes them feel powerful, decisive, and dignified, no matter what their birthplan contains. I would be honored to be considered as a support person in your birthing experience, as the transcendent process between the womb and the world is, in every sense, the grandest esteem in all of humanity.
