Here’s how the Waco Doula on call team 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.

*Coronavirus Update*During the COVID-19 outbreak, many hospitals and birthing centers limited non-hospital personnel to just one visitor besides the birth mother.  Thankfully, doulas are considered a second support person and are able to attend births for expecting mamas. Waco Doula recognizes the challenges of having in-person assistance during these trying times and are pleased to offer the following additional services if that is a more comfortable option for potential clients.

  • 1-2 Prenatal visits by text or video chats w/ our doulas
  • The full Waco Doula’s Basic Birth Support Package – mentioned below
  • Support during labor! – explained below*
  • Access to doulas throughout pregnancy for questions, updates and support.
