BIRTH DOULA SERVICES

There are two main models of doula care. Many doulas use a “back-up” model, which means a “back-up” doula will attend your birth if a scheduling conflict occurs. Which sounds reasonable, until you realize the doula attending your birth may be a complete stranger to you, not the person you entrusted to support your family at the most critical time in your life.

Midwest Doulas was formed to offer an alternative to the “back-up” model of doula care. Our strictly team-based model means you’ll meet the whole team of doulas who may attend your birth. We want you to have the best birth experience possible, and that starts with knowing the doula at your birth. Midwest Doulas provides support, not surprises, when you need it most!

Midwest Doulas believes that families are empowered by education and support, and we know that doesn’t stop at birth. Our postpartum doulas provide in-home support during the postpartum period – a critical time in the lives of mothers, partners, babies, siblings, and entire families.

Our postpartum doula support services are customized to ease the transition when families are adjusting to their newborn and the shifting household dynamic. We begin with a consultation to assess your individual needs, and tailor a schedule that will provide the most beneficial support. Then our doulas provide calming, non-judgmental support to help mothers, families and the entire household thrive.
