Iowa’s first agency supporting expectant families through pregnancy, birth, and beyond.

Hiring either a birth or postpartum doula is one of the most important decisions a pregnant mom can make. Not only will this doula serve as an important support person during the birth of your baby, but she will guide and encourage you through the weeks or months leading up to the birth and after.

“If a doula were a drug, it would be unethical not to use it.” –  John H. Kennell, MD
