What People Are Saying About Us

“Look no further. You have found your doulas. As first time parents, we appreciated every ounce of guidance Birth First Doulas had to give. Our doulas were the absolute perfect balance of bold and nurturing. Their compassion and confidence were an incredible resource for us, and through a long labor that ended with a bang, our doulas were there to help support the both of us. I highly recommend Birth First Doulas, and if we have a second baby we’ll be sure to have them by our side again.”

Lindsay & Drew, N Portland

“My husband and I agree that hiring a Birth First Doula was the best decision we made during my pregnancy. They are experts in the field, tremendously kind, supportive, accommodating, and skilled. We can’t recommend them highly enough.”

Meghan & Tim, NE Portland

“We were blown away by Birth First Doulas’ professionalism and demeanor and instantly felt at ease. They completed our team and we are extraordinarily grateful to have had them woven into our birth story.”

Stephanie & Elliot, Beaverton
