The Doula Services Association is committed to supporting families in BC have positive pregnancies, birth and postpartum experiences. We believe that everyone deserves a doula, not just those who can afford it. Because of this, we offer The Referral Program.
The Referral Program connects individuals in need with doulas to support them through their births. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer this for Postpartum Doula Support.
Low income (Single moms, Disability Income, Ministry Income, both parents students, new immigrants, etc.)
A referral from a Health Care Provider, Community Worker or similar professional (no self referrals accepted)
A desire to have a doula attend the birth
A commitment to call the doula for the birth or to cancel the services as soon as you know they will not be required
Doulas offering their services do so voluntarily and free of charge. We are currently working to grow THE DOULA FUND so that we can begin to pay our amazing volunteers a stipend. We appreciate any and all donations you would like to offer.
