IMPORTANT MESSAGE REGARDING COVID-19: (6/10/2020)
The Philly Doula Co-op is committed to serving our clients in pregnancy, labor and post-partum despite the global COVID-19 pandemic. Under these unprecedented challenging times, with policies and regulations that are beyond our scope to change, and risk factors that are beyond our control, the PDC continues to be committed to providing exceptional quality care to our clients, prenatally, during labor and birth, and through the postpartum period. Safety is paramount. Until the pandemic has reached a point where it has been established that we can resume our practices with assured and measurable safety, or until government, public health and hospital policy has changed in that direction, arrangements for your doula care will be individualized between you and your doula. Our intake coordinator will communicate with you, and the co-op doulas, and the doula will contact you directly. We wish you continued safety and good health.
If you're interested in hiring one of the Philly Doula Co-op's doulas, please use the Contact Us tab to fill out our intake form. When interviewing doulas, please speak with them directly about a current plan for both services and payment during this time.
We will post updated information as we receive it.

The Philly Doula Co-Op is a network of birth professionals who are committed to providing quality services to support optimal 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 post- partum 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 consistency of care.
Many of our doulas have additional professional qualifications, including but not limited
to: certifications for lactation support and childbirth education, licensure for counseling
and therapy, and yoga teacher certification. Please visit Our doulas for more information about our individual doulas.
