About Us

DC Birth Doulas is a group practice of birth and postpartum doulas providing comprehensive education, information and support to families across the DC region. Since 2015, we have supported more than 2,000 families with consistent, high-quality care. 


Our clients benefit from the collective experience, wide base of knowledge and continuous training of each doula in our group practice. Our group model ensures that regardless of illness, accident, travel or personal emergencies you are guaranteed the birth or postpartum support you expect. 

 

Our Values

  • Families are formed and grow in beautiful and diverse ways

  • Every family deserves access to quality health care and resources.

  • You are best cared for when each member of your team centers you and your family

  • Birth often unfolds smoothly and safely and that sometimes medical tools are necessary and desired.

  • Families deserve continued emotional, physical, informational and social support throughout their transition into parenthood

 

Social Justice

As a company we are passionate about maternal health justice at the individual, community, and policy levels. We train as doulas on how to mitigate health inequities in the birthing room and the postpartum space. Our perinatal educators tackle health inequalities through education. We engage with policy makers and community stakeholders to advocate for awareness and broader change in our community. 


We financially support organizations that provide midwifery care, doulas and birth education to under-resourced populations and ensure our staff are paid a fair, livable wage. We also provide generous scholarships for aspiring birth educators from under-resourced communities to our Lamaze Training seminars. We are dedicated to doing our part to help make birth and new parenthood a more just experience for all - one family at a time.
