For Doulas

The Community Doula Birth Program is the first organization in Maine to provide reduced cost doula care to families in need. We are dedicated to the belief that all women deserve a doula at their birth, regardless of income. Many of our families are immigrants, refugees, those experiencing extreme financial hardship due to unexpected illness or other crises.

At the same time, we know how intimidating it can be for a newly-trained doula to set out into the birth world with little to no experience. We are dedicated to growing the doula community and are ready to match doulas with families. To support you through this process, we provide you with forms and guidance for prenatal and postpartum visits.  We also match you with an experienced mentor who will be there discuss prenatal visits, provide support during your birth, and be there for any questions you may have.
