Doula Referral Services for BC

The Doula Services Association is pleased to provide a referral service to families in British Columbia wanting a birth or post partum doula.

All DSA members have completed a training course and are encouraged to pursue ongoing education.  All doulas included on our Referral Lists must adhere to the DSA Code of Ethics, the Standards of Practice, as well as meet the DSA requirements for inclusion.  

Some doulas possess other skills or training that they may bring to their doula work. They may be Childbirth Educators, Breastfeeding Counselors, Massage Therapists, or work in other healthcare related fields.If they have a separate profession it is required that you have a separate contract and payment for the other professional services. Doulas tend to have a sincere interest and commitment to working with childbearing women and their families. You may also wish to download our list of Questions to Ask A Doula.

In order to learn more about what doulas do, and to understand how to find one through the DSA, please take the time to peruse our Learn About Doulas section.

At this time the DSA is not able to provide referrals for volunteer postpartum doulas due to the high demand of their services and the few postpartum doulas available. 

Please contact our Referral Coordinator at 604-515-5588 or         1-877-365-5588 (toll free) if you have any further questions.
