To begin, we are a group of doulas that pulls together 15+ years of experience and all of our knowledge and experience is within your reach. Your two doula team is matched to fit your needs, but it does not stop there. Two doulas? Yes!
We work in teams of two!
We do not work with back up doulas- we have something better- teams! Teams brings you a personal touch, twice the experience, twice the support, and assurance that one of the doulas you know, knows you, your partner, your birth plan, your provider and how your pregnancy has been will be at your birth. You spend your pregnancy getting to know your doulas, the last thing you want is a back up you never met and know little about showing up to support you on your special day. Both doulas will meet you at the consultation, be available via email and phone support throughout your pregnancy, both doulas will be at the prenatal meeting, one of them will be at the birth, and then the postpartum follow up.

Virginia is for Doulas and all of its affiliated doulas proudly work professionally along side providers in our community. Providers have a big responsibility and we appreciate what they do, by building good relationships with providers who respect their patients and their choices, we are able to better support you during your birth.
