Frequently Asked Questions

  • Introduction

    A doula is an excellent choice for individuals looking for extended support when dealing with pregnancy or pregnancy-related conditions. Unlike a doctor, a doula will be more regularly available for their patient.

    However, to be clear, a doula is not a midwife and doesn't provide medical care. People typically choose to work with a doula while still regularly checking in with a doctor or midwife. A doula is an investment in additional emotional support for the mother, the baby, and any other close family members who need it.
  • What is a doula?

    A doula is a trained professional who gives informational, emotional, and physical support to a mother (and potentially others) going through pregnancy, childbirth, miscarriage, induced abortion, stillbirth, birth complications, and more. While most doulas work with clients for reproductive health conditions, some doulas also help with other life experiences, such as hospice or terminal illness.

  • How to become a doula?

    You don’t need a certificate to be a doula, although this can help your career by verifying legitimacy. Regardless of a certificate, you do need to complete training through a qualified doula training program. The program usually takes between three and five days. After training, most programs require you to attend a few births with paperwork to prove your attendance.

  • How much do doulas make?

    The annual salaries of doulas in the United States range from $28,000 in smaller towns to $96,000 in major cities. A doula’s salary can depend on their experience, where they work, and how much work they take on. Most doulas handle an average of four births per year.

  • How much does a doula cost?

    The national average hourly rate for doulas is $45. Additionally, doulas charge a “flat fee” per birth that can range from $600 in small cities and towns to $2,000 in larger metropolitan areas. As a doula gains more experience, they typically raise their rates to reflect their expertise.

  • What is a death doula?

    A death doula assists with the dying process. Death doulas empower, educate, and encourage clients and their loved ones to make decisions and reach acceptance about an upcoming death.

    People who may benefit from working with a death doula include:
    • Individuals with a terminal illness
    • People nearing the end of their lives
    • Those with a loved one about to pass
  • Are doulas covered by insurance?

    Most insurance providers don't cover doulas. However, some states offer coverage for birth doulas under Medicaid programs. To check if you have coverage, contact your insurance provider directly. It's also essential to ask for more details, such as if you get partial or full coverage, if there's a maximum, and if you have to work with a certified doula.
