We have put a lot of thought into organizing our many, many resources in a way that you can quickly and easily find the information you need.
Our Categories include:
- Affirmations - Little sayings, quotes and mantras to read and repeat throughout your pregnancy, birth and postpartum period to keep you thinking positive.
- Birth - Find just about anything having to do with labor and birth.
- Breastfeeding - Includes breastfeeding, bottle feeding, pumping, storing, weaning, etc.
- Building Your Pregnancy/ Birth Team - Who should be present? Who can support you through the birth you desire? What's the difference between a midwife at home and a midwife in a hospital? We've got you covered!
- Classes - Doulaville's Doulas lead classes locally throughout the Seattle/Tacoma Puget Sound, San Francisco Bay Area and Philadelphia covering need-to-know topics like childbirth education, newborn baby care, breastfeeding, baby wearing and several parenting education classes as well.
- Dads, Partners & Other Support - While this goes hand-in-hand with Building Your Pregnancy/ Birth Team, we believe emphasis should be given to Dads/ Partners/ Significant Others as they are just as important!
- Dear Doula Q & A - Our special section for inquisitive parents to ask questions and get answers.
- Events - We periodically host events to build and enhance our local community and to meet new people in the industry.
- Experts - We love to refer our friends, family and clients to experts we know and trust. This is where to find them.
- Meet the Doulas - One of our favorite events are the Meet the Doulas events! Be sure to check out our calendar to find an event that jives with your schedule, then just come on out and meet us. We can't wait to meet you!
- Miscellany - Sometimes we find stuff worth sharing that just doesn't fit into any other category. You'll find those here.
- Philadelphia - We now have doulas ready to support you in Philly! Visit the Philadelphia Doulas site.
- Photos, Memes & Infographs - Because sometimes a quick look-see is all we have time for.
- Photography - Coming Soon!
- Postpartum Baby - All things newborn baby and onward!
- Postpartum Mama - Everything no one thought to share with you about recovering from labor and birth, called the postpartum period. We'll help you prepare yourself for what's to come now that baby makes three.

- Products We Love - We sure love to shop, don't you?! Here, we'll share the products we love, why we love them and where to find them like The Nurture Center - the indispensable source for new parents.
