What is a Doula?
Learn about birth and postpartum doulas, what they do and why their services are important.
Many people think that doulas only promote or only attend non-medicated, intervention-free births. There are statistics that women who have doula support at their births have fewer interventions.
Doulas and partners can make a wonderful team during labor and in the postpartum period. Partners need support too and the doula is a wonderful source of guidance, encouragement and information.
EDUCATING OUR COMMUNITY ABOUT DOULAS
Doulas of Rhode Island was founded to provide Rhode Island families with easy access to birth and postpartum doulas and to educate our parenting community about doula services. As we continue to evolve, we strive to increase public awareness about the physical and emotional benefits of doula support during and after birth.
A group of enthusiastic doulas, eager to share our passion to support one another and birthing families.
DoRI hosts Meet the Doula Nights and participates in community events. Come meet your local doulas!
