BIRTH DOULAS:

We are very excited to offer the Waco Doula On-Call Team for the Central Texas area! Our team has over 20 years of experience and have attended 200+ births. Here’s how it works. At any given time, there will be 3-4 doulas on the rotation for the Waco Doula Team.  Each doula has set days that they’re on call which means there will be someone on call every single day, 24/7.  The client hires the entire team rather than choosing a certain doula to attend their birth.  During your prenatal care, you will have had the opportunity to meet each member of the team so that you do not feel like a stranger is attending your birth.  The on-call doula that ends up attending your birth will also be the doula at your postpartum visit.
