What’s A Doula?

According to DONA International, a doula is a professional who is trained in childbirth and provides continuous support to a mother before, during, and just after birth.

According to parents a doula brings so many things to birth-

“She really goes above and beyond to make everything just how you like it and she was so encouraging and helpful during what turned out to be long pregnancy and a long night and day of labor!” VBAC Mom of 3

“It was also a relief for me to know that my husband had support during our natural birth.”

“The coaching she provided put my husband and I at ease and gave us several ideas and discussion points to think about prior to baby’s arrival… She was informative, patient, and came up with solutions!”

The Mission of the Bismarck Doula Community is to support women and families through:

Public awareness and education about options for pregnancy and childbirth.

Providing access for expecting mothers to utilize doula support.

Networking with other birth-related professionals to create an optimal birthing environment.

Encouraging continuing education and elevating the standard of the professional doula in the Central and Western North Dakota region.
