Durham Volunteer Doulas is a 501(c)(3) organization that was founded in July 2018 to address the need for affordable, accessible, and high-quality doula care in Durham, NC and in the triangle region.
Our mission is to provide doula care at no cost to pregnant individuals who would otherwise be unable to afford doula services. We support individuals who are eligible for programs like presumptive Medicaid, Medicaid, or WIC based on their family income and those experiencing other barriers to care.
We are a growing organization of volunteer birth doulas who serve folks during pregnancy, labor & delivery, and the immediate postpartum period at no charge. All of our volunteers have received doula training; some are private professional doulas working in the Triangle, community members, working professionals, and students. We believe that all families deserve and can benefit from the support, advocacy and empowerment of a birth doula.
To increase awareness and access to the benefits of doula support in our community.
