Parenting begins here
At Doulas of Memphis, we know that having a baby is more than giving birth. It’s an event that changes your family and your world as you know it. It’s when you begin to find your voice as a parent. Our birth doulas support you wherever you are, whether it’s your first pregnancy or you’ve been around the block before. Our desire is for you to feel cared for, validated, and confident in the decisions you make.
We believe in teamwork — when you choose Doulas of Memphis, you work with a team of doulas who are there with you throughout your pregnancy, birth, and the earliest days of parenthood. During your prenatal visit and through phone calls and emails, we get to know you and your preferences for birth. That same teamwork extends from your home and into your labor and delivery room. You’ve chosen your doctor carefully and we respect the relationship of trust you’ve built with them during your pregnancy. While they help ensure the safest birth possible, we work alongside them to support your physical comfort and the emotional well-being of both you and your partner.
After your baby is born, we help you settle in as you get acquainted with your newest family member. Our support continues as we follow up by phone after 3 days, and again at home within the first 10 days to see how you are adjusting and answer any questions you may have.
