Doulas At Work Project

“Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers–strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength.” – Alicia, Dream Birth Doula

“Your pregnancy, labor and birth is like a fingerprint. No two are alike, so please listen to all the stories that are shared with you whether you want to hear them or not, with a grain of salt … In the end, your pregnancy, labor and birth are your story alone, not like anyone else’s. It is solely your’s and your baby’s.” – Caren, Heart Work Doula

“An empowered pregnancy leads to an empowered birth which leads to empowered parenting. This doesn’t mean that the unexpected won’t happen from time to time, but it does mean that making informed decisions that serve your own intuitive knowing will strengthen you throughout your parenting journey.” – Whitney, East Bay and San Francisco doula
“Know why you are saying yes or no to something … This is your birth. You only do a few of these, maybe only one. We do this for a living. It is YOUR special day. YOUR baby. Not ours.” – Patricia, South Bay doula
