The Philly Doula Co-Op is a supportive network of birth professionals who are committed to improving women’s pregnancy, labor, delivery, and postpartum experiences in the greater Philadelphia area.
Our co-op includes seasoned doulas and those new to the profession, offering a range of birth and postpartum services to families. Our collective emphasizes professionalism, education, mentoring, and community.
Each doula in the co-op has completed training through DONA International, CAPPA, BirthArts or Birthing From Within. Before joining the co-op, a doula's candidacy is carefully reviewed and voted upon by all members.
Our doulas benefit from mentoring and on-going professional support. With years of experience, mentor doulas inform the standards of practice for the co-op and serve as models and resources for novice doulas. We offer a range of fees for our services commensurate with experience, allowing prospective clients the freedom to choose the doula that best matches their needs while still providing a consistent labor package.
Many of our doulas have additional qualifications, such as certifications for lactation support and childbirth education. Please visit Our doulas for more information about our individual doulas.
