Birth Doula Program

The Birth Doula Program has been in operation since 2010, supporting families as they bring their babies into the world. We currently can support clients at The Scarborough Network and Markham Stouffville Hospital.

Our goal since we began was to make doulas affordable for all families. We currently offer families two options when registering for the program. They can choose to be a part of our Apprentice Program ($350 plus HST), which offers a doula who is working through certification at a lower rate, or they can hire an experienced certified doula ($1150 plus HST).
