Who are Birthways’ Labor Support Doulas?

All doulas have received their initial training from a national certifying agency such as DONA or toLabor. At Birthways, we consider this the very beginning of doula training and education.

Our doulas possess additional training, such as Hypnobirthing, Massage, Acupressure, Spinning Babies, Midwifery or medical degrees and licensure, and more.

Our doulas have a broad experience and wisdom to support:
• first time mothers
• women who have previously given birth
• women with vaginal births after cesarean (VBAC)
• home births
• hospital births
• common (and not-so-common) complications.

We knowledgeably support women with complex health histories, prior injuries or muscular-skeletal anomalies or weaknesses, and will work with physical therapists or other health care teams to support and protect your body during childbirth.
