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 throughout a woman’s labor. The idea of the doula comes from the tradition of women helping women in and after childbirth, to make the birth and transition into a new family a positive and rewarding experience.
