What is a doula?

The word doula is taken from an ancient Greek word meaning "woman who serves." Today, the term doula refers to a compassionate and experienced individual who guides an individual or family through a significant life transition such as a birth, postpartum, or the end of life. During their work together, the doula provides continuous support to all members of the new family—client, partner, and family. The doula and the family come to share a deep connection founded on the guidance, experience, information, and support the doula provides. 

Families who have benefited from professional doula assistance report feeling more positive about their life transitions, achieving greater success with self care, and bonding more strongly as a family, even months later!

Birth & Postpartum

Family Ways Birth Doulas support each unique family through a personalized and satisfying birth journey. We draw on our professional training, knowledge, and experience to provide emotional support, physical comfort and, as needed, communication with staff to give you the resources you need to make informed decisions as they arise. Additionally, our classes and workshops teach relaxation, soothing touch, positioning, and other techniques for comfort.

Posptartum & Family Growth

Family Ways Postpartum Doulas support new and growing families through the highs and lows of the postpartum journey. We draw on our professional training, knowledge, and experience to provide emotional support, physical comfort, and personalized guidance on feeding, sleeping, babywearing, and more for babies through toddlers. Join a class, workshop, or support group to connect with the community and get additional support and guidance.

End-of-Life

Family Ways End-of-Life Doulas help the dying and their families experience a personalized, supported death. We draw on our professional training, knowledge, and experience to provide emotional support, physical comfort, and personalized guidance to both the dying individual and loved ones through the end-of-life period. Additional support for family is available through the bereavement period as well.
