What does it mean to be a doula? 

“I foster new beginnings.”

“I promise to hold your space.”

“I’m committed to inclusive language. ”

All of the above, and so much more.

Born out of our I Am Doula campaign, we’re proud to introduce our I Am Doula video series! The campaign, which featured statements that resonated with doulas everywhere, taught us an important universal truth: There’s a little bit of doula in all of us. Enjoy!
