JOIN THE POSTPARTUM + NIGHT TEAM

become a Born doula

As doulas our job isn’t just a job—it’s a sacred responsibility to teach women how to trust their bodies, to safeguard postpartum, to normalize postpartum, and to witness the transformation of a couple and the creation of a family. We are blessed to be onlookers to some of the most beautiful moments of life—-gorgeous, raw moments. And a doula who is wholly fueled and supported in her work is even more present for those beautiful moments. A burned out doula? Not so much.

 

We stretch ourselves thin with long hours, we pour ourselves into our clients, and then we return home exhausted to care for our own partners, children and homes. We work in isolation, sometimes experiencing trauma and frustration and we don’t always have a safe place place to land—people to share with, to counsel with.

We believe that doulas can do what they love and have a life.

We believe that doulas deserve a living wage, an excellent living wage that provides for their families. We believe that doulas deserve a community of sisters to share the pain and the joy with.

WHY THIS WORK             WORKING FOR YOU

isn't

'

It’s difficult to find clients. Some months are slow and when you don’t get any inquiries you start to worry about where your next paycheck will come from.

You're not charging what you're worth.  You know the value that you bring to couples but you don't feel confident asking for what you really feel you're worth.

You feel isolated. You work alone, sometimes furtively texting a trusted friend to ask a question. It gets lonely, especially when you can’t talk about the difficult things you witness. You long for a trusted circle of women.

You're tired of all the back-end work.  You dislike answering emails, setting up interviews, sending out contracts, collecting payment.  You'd much rather show up and do the work you love without all the business owner headaches.

WHY WORKING WITH              IS DIFFERENT
