The Red Deer Doula Association is a non-profit organization formed to provide information about Doulas and Doula services to the general public and expectant parents about their labour and postpartum support options while operating as a network for fellow Doulas.
Within the Red Deer Doula Association our supporters are both birth doulas and postpartum doulas to help your family. All current Doulas of the Red Deer Doula Association have attended training through an organization such as DONA or CAPPA and have assisted at least 3 families during birth or the postpartum period. Our Doulas are trained and committed to helping couples have the birth they desire. We provide emotional support, physical comfort measures and encouragement during labour, delivery and beyond. They each run their own Doula businesses offering a variety of services and skills in their practice, while networking with Doulas in our Association, to help provide the best support for couples in Red Deer & area.
The word “doula” comes from the ancient Greek meaning “a woman who serves” and is now used to refer to a trained and experienced professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to the mother before, during and just after birth; or who provides emotional and practical support during the postpartum period.
If you are a doula interested in joining the Red Deer Doula Association, please send us an email to find out more about our organization. firstname.lastname@example.org

Disclaimer: The Red Deer Doula Association Doulas are a collection of individual doulas running their own businesses. We are not a certifying agency and therefore cannot suspend a doula’s practice. We ultimately cannot control what other doulas do or do NOT do, but if you have any concerns regarding a doula in the association, please contact us. We do have guidelines that our Doulas are to adhere to and follow, but we cannot ultimately control their actions. We are not a Governing body, simply a volunteer organization. The RDDA believes that the actions of on Doula does not reflect the association as a whole.
