Meet the Doulas
Check out Blossom's new class Pregnancy 101! Learn all about your options in maternity care, birth classes, and more. Stick around to mingle with local doulas afterwards.
Join other new and expectant parents once a month to learn about the benefits of doula services (birth and postpartum). Each Meet the Doulas Night includes an overview of what doulas do, the benefits of doula services, and how to find the right doula for you. Birth and postpartum doulas from the community participate to answer parents’ questions. Time will also be provided for parents to meet individually with doulas.
Please register through YogaReg at least three days prior to the date you plan to attend. Please let us know your due date, your phone number, and if you are interested in learning about Birth and/or Postpartum Doulas.
Meet the Doulas Night is a community service provided by Blossom. Blossom does not endorse specific doulas.
About Professional Birth & Postpartum Doulas
A birth doula, or childbirth assistant, offers non-medical, one-to-one care during pregnancy and the birth of your baby. This service makes available the nurturing care and support that traditional obstetrical care isn't always able to provide. A postpartum doula provides care for the family after the baby is born.
Blossom maintains relationships with many of the trained and certified doulas in the community, and we can assist you in finding a doula that meets your needs. Please visit our provider list for names of birth doulas and postpartum doulas in our community.
A birth doula supports you and your partner by providing the knowledge, comfort, and education necessary for a fulfilling birth experience, using techniques such as:

Postpartum doulas can be a great resource after the birth of your baby. Most postpartum doulas will come in for 3 to 6 hours a day, 2 or more days per week, for 2 to 10 weeks. They provide breastfeeding support, meals, help with newborn tasks, errands, and most anything else that helps a household run smoothly. They do not take over care of the baby, nor do they do heavy housecleaning tasks. Having someone who is familiar with newborns come to your home on a regular basis can be very reassuring especially in the first weeks after your baby is born.
