When you choose to work with a Golden Gate Doula, you have triple protection when it comes to your backup team! In the event that your primary doula is unable to attend your birth you will have the support of one of our experienced Birth Doulas. The backup team changes weekly to be able to provide you with a fresh doula when you need them. Your Primary Doula will help make the transition as smooth as possible.
Doulas are all Infant CPR certified, current on vaccines, and have clear background checks.
We feel that the postpartum period is often not focused on enough during your pregnancy journey. Our postpartum doulas will go above and beyond to help your transition into parenthood a positive and enjoyable experience. All the doulas are trained in postpartum recovery, newborn care, lactation, and postpartum nutrition. They are certified and have additional education and training by pediatric nurses who keep them current on all the latest from the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Our Birth Doulas work together as a team to make sure that you have an experienced doula for your labor. You will have a primary doula who meets with you during your pregnancy to make sure you have the skills and confidence to begin your journey into labor. On the rare occasion your primary doula is unable to attend your birth you will have an on-call backup doula from the group to support you. Our Labor Doulas have years of experience and have attended hundreds of births in the Bay Area. All the Doulas in our practice provide you with evidence-based information for your pregnancy and birth.
