Our Mission

To provide networking and continuing education opportunities


To educate the Portland-Area public about the roles of birth and postpartum doulas and to promote doulas as a whole.


To create a strong, unified membership of new and experienced doulas.


To foster a support system for doulas–promoting self-care and decreasing burnout.


To maintain relationships with other professionals who provide services to women, birthing people, and families around pregnancy, birth, postpartum, breastfeeding & infant care.


As an organization we recognize that racial, cultural, and gender discrimination exists and we strive to support individuals and organizations combating such discrimination.
