About Us

"Let [your adornment] be the hidden person of the heart,
with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit...."
I Peter 3:3a,4

STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

We are a Christian support group of women providing doula services. We bring with us different personalities, strengths and backgrounds. We offer these services without regard to nationality or religious beliefs.

We are either certified or pursuing certification with DONA (Doulas of North America) and support the DONA Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice.

We have a strong belief in providing educational information, physical and emotional support and Godly love to childbearing women and their families.

We believe each life begins at conception, is uniquely created by God, and is a gift of God. We believe in the power of prayer.

It is our desire to educate the community about doulas, pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding, and other important family issues.

We provide back-up services for each other, treating each others clients with the same love as we treat our own clients.

We realize and accept our limitations as doulas. We are not medically trained and do not attempt to give medical advice or perform medical services.

Gentle Spirit Doulas fully support the WHO code on marketing breastmilk substitutes.
