Your family is growing by two feet- and 10 tiny toes! You’ve had the ultrasounds, made the registry and picked out the perfect name. Now you’re ready to hire your doula.
Where do you start?
How do you know who to trust on one of the most important days of your life?
You may do a Google search for doulas in your area, find a doula with good reviews (or a really pretty website with pictures of the happiest family ever) and make a phone call. If you’re like many soon-to-be parents, you ask friends, family, your OB/midwife and every woman with a child between the age of 3 days and 13 years old who they recommend. Others make a list, and narrow it down based upon location, availability, price, and experience.
We’ll make this easy for you.
You’ve found your doula!
Doulas of Central Maryland is YOUR doula service. It doesn’t matter if you’re a first time mother or a seasoned veteran when it comes to childbirth.
So what exactly is it that sets DCMD apart?
First, we pride ourselves on professionalism, both individually and as a business.
We are not ‘hobby doulas’. This is the career path we have chosen to provide for our families. Every doula is trained through ProDoula to ensure cohesive and consistent service, individually insured, and maintains current CPR and First Aid certifications.
As a business, we operate as such; Doulas of Central Maryland is an LLC in the state of Maryland, has a tax ID number and operates from a business bank account (and pays taxes accordingly). We maintain professional relationships with other birth workers and your care providers- this includes OB’s, midwives and nurses, both in office, as well as at area hospitals.
Secondly, DCMD will support YOUR birth and YOUR choices.
Nonjudgmental, unbiased support. Unconditionally.
Whether you are planning an elective cesarean birth, prefer to labor without medication, planning for an induction or know you’ll want an epidural as soon as you walk through the door, your birth preferences are yours alone. Change your mind? That’s fine too! Our support never wavers.
