"If a doula were a drug, it would be unethical not to use it."
~  John H. Kennell, M.D., pediatrician, author and 'father' of the modern doula movement

What is a Doula, and why would you want one?
What if you already have a husband or partner who plans to be actively involved?
How do you find the right doula for you and your family?

Can you afford one?  (Yes!)

Join other new and expectant parents at Meet the Doulas Night to learn the answers
to these and other questions about birth and postpartum doula services.

~   Receive an overview of what doulas do
~   Learn the benefits of doula services
~   Understand how dads/partners and doulas work together
~   Discover how to find the right doula for you

Doulas working in the Greater South Bay Area (Santa Cruz - Palo Alto) will be on hand to answer your questions, offer personalized referrals, and represent some of the wonderful variety of personalities, ages, backgrounds, and skills you can find in a birth or postpartum doula. Time is also provided for parents to meet individual doulas in brief "get acquainted" interviews.


Did you know that studies1 show the benefits of working with a doula may include:
~   shorter labor lengths
~   reduction in requests for epidural
~   decreased use of forceps or vacuum
~   increased confidence in husband or partner
~   reduction in cesarean rates
~   higher breastfeeding success rates
~   more opportunity to spend time bonding with baby
~   easier transition into parenthood
