Throughout your pregnancy, you’re dealing with a lot of unknowns. You start constantly questioning yourself whether you’re navigating some weird and unknown symptoms or wondering if you are fully prepared for your birth plan. What you could use right now is an expert who will work with you one-on-one and give you unlimited support. While they cannot provide you with medical assistance, they can tell you all about your options and ensure you have the resources to make the best decisions for your family. Plus, they can give you advice throughout your pregnancy so you can know what’s normal and whether you need to be concerned. As a Phoenix maternity and newborn photographer, I get to chat with my clients about all the best birth workers in the city, and I would love to tell you all about their favorite Phoenix doulas

Doula Noleen

Noleen started her work as a Phoenix doula after 12 years of being a stay-at-home mom. She loved her own pregnancy and labor experiences, and she wanted to ensure other parents had access to the same happy beginning. Noleen can assist in every birth setting and will ensure you have the perfect environment for your delivery. She starts out with a consultation followed by an in-home prenatal visit. During this time, she will get to know what you expect from your delivery and will make sure you have the information you need to make it happen. She has a backup doula in case she can’t be present at your birth for any reason.

Sunshine Doula Services

Sunshine Doula Services was started by Kelly Sunshine, an experienced doula who will quickly feel like another member of your family. Kelly has created a team of all-star doulas who are deeply passionate about the birth world. The team works closely together and brings similar approaches to their care. If there is any reason why your doulas can’t be present for your Phoenix delivery, they will send another member of the crew who will bring the same compassionate touch to your experience. The team will work with you regardless of your birth preference and will be your fiercest advocate.

Labor and Lullabies

Labor and Lullabies is here for your labor as well as everything that comes next. While the team does offer labor and birth doulas, they specialize in the postpartum stage. You can select a doula who will be there for daytime family care, lactation support, and overnight newborn care. You’re going to be able to get the rest you need so you can be the best parent to your baby! The birth doulas will support you with all birthing preferences and will provide you with physical and emotional comfort through every step. 

Whole Mama Wellness Collective

Whole Mama Wellness Collective provides you with a team of experienced doulas who want to ensure you have a community for this important time in your life. Beyond offering this support themselves, they offer Mama Meetups every two weeks. This is a time when you can gather together with other parents in a similar season and build the connection that can often get lost in the haze of the baby stage. The team can provide both birth and postpartum support. They will prioritize your emotional health along the way so you will have a reduced risk of developing a postpartum mood disorder.

P.S. Love, Mommy Doula Services

P.S. Love, Mommy and their doulas work to empower parents all across Phoenix to have the best birth experience possible! The center works hard to make sure they don’t replace your partner throughout birth. Instead, your doula will empower them to be the best support person for you. The doulas have spent the past few years building up strong relationships with the OBs and midwives in the area. This gives them the ability to take a more comprehensive approach to your care. The center offers birth and labor support, postpartum doulas, and placenta encapsulation. 

Doula By Grace

Doula By Grace is a one-woman operation opened by Grace Lape. Grace believes every woman should have access to the birth experience that’s right for them. She will support you regardless of whether you’re having an unmedicated birth or an epidural. She runs her practice with the motto, “Follow mom’s lead.” Before you start using her services, you can have a free initial consultation to ensure she’s the person for you. If so, you will have two prenatal meetings where you will build your birth plan together. She will be there for unlimited birth support and will provide you with a postpartum visit. She can work in every home, birth center, and hospital across the greater Phoenix area.
