Are you on the hunt for a Birth Doula? Or maybe you're thinking about hiring a Birth Doula but don't know where to start. We invite you to learn about the roles of a Birth Doula and Postpartum Doula and why a doula may be an essential part of your birth plan.

The greek word "doula" means “a woman who serves.” Doula now refers to a professional who provides education and advocacy during pregnancy, birth, and the immediate postpartum period, on-call services 24/7 in late pregnancy, and reasonably continuous physical and emotional support during labor.

A postpartum doula provides expertise on feeding, postpartum adjustment, overnight and newborn care, and logistical, household, and sibling support to help ease the transition into parenthood for new and experienced parents alike.

This meeting offers you an intimate setting to talk to doulas one on one and ask questions to help you create the best birth team for you and your partner.

We look forward to seeing you! 

Richmond Doulas is a nonprofit organization of independent doulas that serves to promote and support the work of birth and postpartum doulas in the Greater Richmond area.
