Find  a birth or postpartum doula. There are a range of levels of experience for doulas from the newly trained doula to a doula with many years experience.  There are a range of "well seasoned" to "brand new" doulas to fit your needs. 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.

As a DONA International trained Doula, I provide continuous physical and emotional support to mothers during labor and childbirth. I’ll also offer assistance in gathering information for you to make the most informed decisions regarding the course of labor and your options. I am sensitive to your vision and serve you without my own agenda. I bring mature experience to a sacred event in your life that is found to be comforting. My role in “mothering the mother” empowers the mother to have the birth experience she desires.

As a postpartum doula during your fourth trimester, I’ll draw on my experience, wisdom and training to foster strong family bonding, increase your confidence as a new mother, and offer practical support in feeding, sleeping and household organization. My strength and reliability are especially appreciated and valuable when a partner or spouse is unavailable to be with you. I look forward to hearing from you and finding out how I can be of service to you.
