Above all, our number one goal as doulas is to support parents in their pregnancy, birth, and parenthood journey.

Choosing a birth coach to support your family is an important decision and we are so glad you have chosen us! We serve all hospitals, birth centers, and home births in Milwaukee and Southeast Wisconsin. We are Wisconsin’s largest, premier doula agency.

Fewer interventions

Studies show doulas decrease the risk of a c-section by up to 50%. In addition, birth doulas also lower the rate of unnecessary interventions and the duration of labor on average by 40min! Having a thought partner can also decrease the amount of interventions during pregnancy.

Better long-term health

A birth doula decreases the risk of postpartum depression, increases the rate of breastfeeding, and mothers report consistently a more positive self-image after birth. A very important factor for mom and baby’s well-being.

Improved birth outcomes

Parents that feel supported, for example by a doula, have fewer premature births, a better understanding of their options, and babies do better after birth. Moreover, moms were significantly more satisfied with their partners 6 weeks after birth when they were supported by a birth doula.

Your experience matters to us! Hear from our past parents.

I used Doulas milwaukee to help me find a doula to guide me during the birth of my second son in May. Working with them allowed me to quickly narrow down the right support for my needs and connect me to certified doulas to interview. The site was easy to use and also provided great information about what to consider during the process. my doula was so helpful in educating me about birth options and patient rights. I thought I knew what to do with a second birth, but realized there was much more to learn and decisions that were in my control that led to an amazing birth experience. Finding my doula and having her guidance changed everything for my delivery because she helped me trust my body and encouraged me to stand up for what I wanted in a delivery. I highly recommend using Doulas of milwaukee and finding the right doula to help you during this special time!

I have really enjoyed working with my doula during my pregnancy and birth of my daughter. Understanding different options and choices for my prenatal care and my birth was greatly beneficial to accomplish the experience my husband and I wanted. The tea was very flexible and accommodated meeting virtually.

Parents Matter at Doulas Milwaukee

The benefits of having a doula during your pregnancy, birth, and postpartum period are well-documented. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists notes that “continuous labor support by a doula is one of the most effective tools to improve labor and delivery outcomes”. In other words, a doula lowers cesarean and intervention rates, increases satisfaction for mom, shortens labor, and achieves a better APGAR score for baby.

At Doulas Milwaukee, we strive to provide you the best doula care and birth services available because we believe that every parent’s journey matters. Our birth doulas are vetted, certified, and come with meaningful experiences to support you in your journey. Above all our mission is to listen, provide evidence-based information to help you make informed decisions, and offer support all parents deserve. We serve all of Milwaukee and Southeast Wisconsin.
