Having a baby is a key life experience that families never forget, so it is imperative that the perception of birth and early parenthood be as positive as possible. We believe by fully engaging in partnerships with parents; we can create a space for self-empowerment—one birth, one baby, and one family at a time. While empowerment comes from within, continuous support, reassurance, and validation encourage inner strength. Each Elite doula digs deep for that connection.

Together we are powerful.

Not only do we work in our communities, but we also live in them too. We believe in the power of shared values to shape and change the future of our communities by allocating common ideas, goals, and connection. We seek collaboration among our community leaders, other business owners, and dynamic individuals to create resources for parents, establish educational events and activities, network complimentary services and support local non-profit organizations together. Each Elite doula has individually thrived but maintaining this gold standard of excellence alone can be overwhelming.

Together we are better.

While ancient wisdom in supporting a woman throughout her childbearing year is a time-honored tradition, only recently has it been considered a legitimate profession. We believe that by valuing doulas we can create sustainability, decrease burnout rates, and garner respect among clients, our families, and other healthcare providers. Each Elite doula has strived for professionalism with her peers.

Together we are stronger.
