Doula Foundation

Doulas give new mothers the support they need to give their children a healthy, happy start in life.

The Doula Foundation is a non-profit organization located in Springfield, MO. We assist mothers and their families before, during, and after pregnancy in Greene County and the surrounding areas.


What are Doulas?

Doulas are experienced birth companions. They provide physical and emotional support before, during and after the birth. The word doula is Greek and means one who serves or “mothering the mother.”

How We Help

The Doula Foundation firmly believes that every family, regardless of their financial means, deserves emotional, physical and informational support before, during and after the birth process. We provide the following services that ease the physical and emotional challenges of childbirth, encourage the bond between parent and child, and provide a sense of empowerment to new and soon-to-be parents.
