    We are happy to provide listings for your community.  The birth professionals listed have endorsed the Military Birth Resource Network's Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice and where applicable they have a base license. These professionals endorse our goal to make a positive difference for pregnant women, new mothers, and their families through education, nurturing, and advocacy while fostering respect, knowledge, and integrity among professionals everywhere. 

    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.  Doulas listed on our website do not work for MBRN or the local chapter. 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.

    Bright Blessings Birth Services (BBBS) provides Birth Doulas, Postpartum Doulas, Childbirth Education, Lactation Education, Placenta Encapsulation and Doula Training workshops.  BBBS is the only agency on the top ten list of Doulas in St Louis that is on the Illinois side of the Mississippi river, and is closest to Scott AFB.  Our doulas are primarily this side of the river and the director Annie Hill (and Madriella Doula Network Senior Advisory Board member and Authorized Workshop Provider) lives less than a mile from the base gates.  Our Doulas are able to either sit with you in early labor or meet you at the hospital, it’s really your choice, as it’s your pregnancy.  Placenta encapsulation has a promised 72 hour turn around from pickup, but is usually delivered around 24 hours.
