DOULA Program Picture

A Doula is someone who helps families before, during and after childbirth.

They go through a special training and learn the best ways to help moms feel comfortable.


Having a baby can be a beautiful experience, but sometimes moms can feel nervous!

Doulas are here to help you feel strong and confident when it’s time for your baby to come.

They help you get ready for labor while you are still pregnant, and then stay with you at the hospital the whole time you have your baby.

They then visit you and the baby once you are back home.
Call 435-2000 for more information.

*All Healthy Start Doulas are certified by Village Birth International, and fully insured. They support moms with hospital deliveries.
