Doula UK was founded in 2001 to promote life-changing support from skilled doulas for familes in the childbearing year regardless of circumstance, while advocating for better support for UK families.
We have approximately 700 doulas working in all parts of the United Kingdom. Each member must complete Doula UK approved training, go through a rigorous mentoring and recognition process and comply with Doula UK code of conduct and policies.
The world has changed along with our birthing and parenting practices. The needs of new families are sometimes forgotten and misunderstood.
We represent a new era of compassion; learning from the past and looking to the future. We nurture our membership, so they can unconditionally support the needs of everyone involved in pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period.
We aim to…
- Promote life-changing support for women and birthing people in the childbearing year, regardless of circumstance
- Nurture the doula community; protecting parents and health professionals
- Advocate for better support for UK families
