Find birth and postpartum doulas in your area. To learn more about the difference between birth and postpartum doulas and the types of services provided, see What is Doula? A consumer’s guide to getting the help you need. All doulas offering services through this website are agreeing to provide free services to families who cannot otherwise afford to pay for services.* Doulas retain the right to refuse free services to families who appear able to hire a doula, but they may not use this website to solicit paying customers. To see whether or not you qualify for free services, check our Income Guidelines.
*Since many of our volunteers are themselves low income, volunteers may ask to be reimbursed for out-of-pocket expenses of providing services to you, such as mileage reimbursement at $.55 per mile and parking fees at the hospital.
Only doulas offering free services to families are invited to register. You must have completed formal doula training to list your services on this site. We recommend that you upload a picture of yourself to accompany your online profile. Your picture should not include other people and, in particular, it should not include doula clients since we do not have their permission to use their images. A simple head shot of you is best. Finally, we will not include commercial website links in the Directory. Registration should take less than 5 minutes of your time.
If you are charging a fee for services, you can be listed for free here: Find a Doula Michigan on Center for the Childbearing Year’s website. The Center also offers affordable paid listings on this page and in their Professional Directory.
