Professional Doulas in Portland, Oregon
Brooke and Rebecca created Birth First Doulas to help families and doulas find each other! Over the last 25 years of attending births and training doulas in Portland, Oregon, we’ve watched the demand for doula services grow and grow but have not seen an equal expansion in systems and businesses that support doulas to provide their services. Our Birth First vision is to be Portland’s most trusted doula group and to provide the business framework, professional standards, and reliable reputation from which families and doulas both benefit. You’re looking for skilled professional doulas, and they’re looking for you. Let us streamline the process and provide the structure.
