The DSA is a non-profit, volunteer-run organization. We are very proud to provide volunteer doulas to families who are unable to pay for these services and would like to continue offering this much-needed service.
with any doubts or concerns we had."
Who Benefits From this?
Women and families who have been referred to us get the much needed support every birthing family deserves. Commonly, these are people experiencing financial hardship, lack of support, high risk situations or demographics. We are very proud to provide a doula for all that want one.
Communities benefit when it's members are supported, especially in birth - one of life's most profound events; an event that can absolutely be life-changing for many.
Our Doulas benefit by being recognized for the heart and passion they bring to our communities - they may not expect to be paid for their services but appreciate having minimal costs met such as meals, parking and gas.

Make a Donation to the The Kathie Lindstrom Education Fund
The Kathie Lindstrom Continuing Education Fund was established in 2004 to honour Kathie Lindstrom and recognize her ongoing contributions to the training, mentoring, and promotion of doulas. It is funded on a biannual basis through generous grants from Douglas College. A panel consisting of Kathie Lindstrom, the Doula Services Association President, and our Referral Intake Director confidentially review all applications and determine the amount awarded to each applicant. Individual funding amounts may vary from cycle to cycle with the number of applications received. This funding may only be used for any form of continuing education, as long as it pertains to doula work (e.g. courses on pregnancy massage or training for childbirth educators).
