Welcome to Desert Doula Birth & Postpartum Services.
Founded in 1997 in Tucson, AZ the Desert Doulas are committed to supporting women in their choices for childbirth, helping them grow in confidence during their pregnancy and labor, and when bringing baby home. As doulas our goal is to listen to families and show respect for their culture, ideas, and customs.
Doula is a Greek word meaning a “woman who gives another woman support and assistance.” As a trained childbirth assistant, a birth doula provides continuous emotional and physical support throught a woman’s labor. The idea of the doula comes from the traidition of women helping women in and after childbirth, to make the birth and transition into a new family a positive and rewarding experience.
Together we have been in practice for over 40 years and have served thousands of families. Our vision to support women and families in our city has never changed, and never will. Our years in the community have given us unprecedented support and unity with the many maternity providers in Tucson, and we have worked hard to establish and maintain those relationships so that both providers and clients can feel confident in the resources we provide to pregnant and postpartum women.
