SUPPORTING FAMILIES SINCE 2012
Are you interested in having a natural birth? Do you want to know how to use comfort techniques or understand medical interventions? Do you desire a positive birth experience where you feel confident about your choices and in control? Having a doula present can help you reach these and many more goals.
Do you want to prepare for your birth and the postpartum period? Does your partner know how to support you during this time? We know that your time is precious, so we offer a hybrid (part in-person and part online) childbirth education class designed by us for you. This class is perfect for first time parents or to prepare for VBAC.
Do you know the benefits of breastfeeding for you and your baby? Are you wanting to gain confidence about breastfeeding through our classes? Once your baby is here, would you like to join our free breastfeeding support group? Finally, if challenges with breast-feeding arise, we can help you with personalized in-person support.

Natural Baby Doulas is a group of six doulas working together in the greater Triad area of North Carolina to provide families with support during their pregnancy, labor, birth, and postpartum period. We have very similar training, experience, and philosophical approach to the way we provide support for our clients. We have supported over 600 families and each family has their own unique birth goals and preferences. We help moms reach their birth goals whether it is an unmedicated birth, a waterbirth, a smooth induction, a VBAC, an epidural birth, a gentle c-section or a combination of these. Each doula brings skills and interests that we incorporate into our practice. We love and trust the ability of a woman to give birth and we believe her experience is improved with the support of a doula.
As childbirth educators, doulas, and mothers ourselves, we have found that when a woman and her partner are educated about the birth process and are focused on staying healthy and low-risk, they are less fearful of labor. In these cases, knowledge does equal power: the power to appreciate and welcome birth, rather than fear it.
We attend hospital, birth center, and home births in Greensboro, High Point, Winston Salem, Burlington, Chapel Hill, Statesville, and everywhere in between. We also provide postpartum doula support in Greensboro, High Point, and Burlington.
