Sister Doulas

What is a Doula?

A doula is a professional labor support person.  They are experts at getting women through the process of labor and birth.  They support physiologic normal birth and attend births in all setting.  The Sister Doulas of Uzazi Village are available to work with any woman located in the metropolitan area.  Doulas are not healthcare providers and do not provide clinical services.  They are trained to provide physical, and emotional supportive care and education.

The Sister Doula Co-op

If you are interested in hiring one of our Sister Doulas, simply call one of the numbers below or email us.  You can phone interview as many Sister Doulas as you like and may have a complimentary ‘getting to know you’ appointment with one or two.  Once you have selected a doula and a back-up doula, and payment arrangements have been made, your doula services will begin.  We suggest you hire your Sister Doula as you enter your second trimester.  Sister Doulas can help you clarify your birth plan, suggest community resources, and give guidance on providers and practices.  Sister Doulas work with clients at home, in birth centers and at the hospital.  They work with those planning unmedicated and medicated births.  Our Sister Doulas are skilled in supporting physiologic birth and breastfeeding.
