Let us provide the structure so you can focus on the client.
A career as a doula is some of the most rewarding work you’ll ever do, but there are challenges unique to birth work that we feel are best addressed within a supportive community. Birth First believes in supporting the doula’s profession, family life, culture, and spirit, and we accomplish this by encouraging each doula to create a meaningful business that honors their values and accommodates their lifestyle. Our Birth First Doula community is committed to fostering sustainability, inclusion, and success through promoting, mentoring, and inspiring our doulas.
