“Thanks to DC Birth Doulas, both of us were able to stay fully in the moment throughout labor and beyond - something that is truly priceless.”
Don't take our word for it...
"DC Birth Doulas doesn't need another five star review, but they definitely deserve it for the excellent and holistic service they provide as birthing partners. They have a large team which means that you won't know exactly who will be helping you at the birth, but that also means that you will always be covered and supported no matter what.
DCBD provides so much additional support beyond just delivery and you can pick and choose exactly what level works for you. They clearly list all of their services on their websites (with prices!!) and you can get a birthing bundle or pick and choose as you see fit.
As first time parents we chose the birth bundle which comes with virtual classes, support groups pre and post birth, regular email updates on pregnancy stages and call-in support. We found the classes a little overwhelming (as much of pregnancy and birth prep is) but appreciated that there were options to break them up over several sessions or just take in one long block and tried both options (all classes still virtual, which is honestly very helpful for tired pregnant people).
We also utilized the doula call line in helping us decide between our two hospital/practice choices and found their insights very helpful. One of the most striking things about giving birth is how often you are left alone at the hospital except for the moment of active labor, so by hiring DCBD you are adding a dedicated, caring and present member to your "team". I can't recommend that, or this practice, enough." - DH Yelp Review
