Compassionate Birth Doulas

MotherMe Doulas on Call is an organization designed for supporting women and their families through the childbearing year. Our Dallas,  Fort Worth or Online Lamaze classes feature pregnancy & labor, birth & postpartum, successful breastfeeding, comfort measures and breathing as well as newborn care, calming and massage classes. 

Online, streaming or in the classroom, our workshops bring confidence to expectant parents and provide homework and access to our video library for further reminders at home. Birth plans, epidurals, medicated birth and natural birth, how to prepare for a healthy postpartum year are all addressed in this series. Parents rave about the content and how engaged they felt in our classroom.

Our mission statement is to:

  • Provide a community to empower mother’s freedom to make informed decisions for her options in family-centered MotherBaby care.

  • Provide training, mentoring and certification for doulas and a community of sisterhood.

  • Whether a woman is desiring a completely natural, no-intervention childbirth, or one with all the bells and whistles, we meet her where she is to support her in the experience that she finds desirable.

We also have a basket full of recommendations if you are shopping for a certain type of experience. From homebirth, to birthing centers, to hospitals – we know the options out there and can help you find the exact practitioner and location for meeting your new wee one.

Platinum doulas have most experience. These women have shown excellence in professionalism, commitment and follow-through. Her evaluations from care providers, mothers and families are consistently excellent; her remarkable work ethic has gained her an invitation to become a Staff Doula with MotherMe Doulas on Call. She may be involved in training of new doulas and host our classes. These experienced doulas are Texas State Department of Health Breastfeeding Educators and have accompanied many women and families through their third and fourth trimesters as Birth & Postpartum doulas. She will have Graduate doulas as her assistants.

Apprentice Doulas have completed their 9-module classroom work, have turned in all homework and have begun their training through the Texas State Department of Health for Breastfeeding Education. She is working through her 1-3 year apprenticeship and is actively involved and participating in monthly Roundtables, In-Service events and consistently turning in her Personnel File Maintenance. She appreciates your return of evaluations to assist her in obtaining her Certification through our organization. She works under the supervision of a Certified Doula.

Many of our doulas work in pairs. This gives you the benefit of always knowing your doula’s backup. No blind dates! And there is always someone with a fresh attitude and demeanor to support you during a long labor. All of our doulas are dually trained in both birth and postpartum. If you didn’t plan on needing a postpartum doula, but now realize that you do, you’re in luck! We are all trained in the same curriculum, attend the same continuing education events and are all Texas State Department of Health Breastfeeding Educators or working toward this title.

Your doula will make every effort to attend portions of your Lamaze Healthy Birth Class – Natural Comfort Measures for Labor & Birth in order to have a trial run of the relaxation and massage techniques that you find most helpful.

Then your doula team will attend your prenatal appointments – they listen in to your questions and provide you with satisfying answers. They get to know your husband or labor partner and listen to what his needs and desires are for the birth as well.

MotherMe Doulas provide the following in our complete service packages.

1. An initial consultation to review over 100 choices you will have in your labor and birth. This provides you with a good idea of some good conversations to have with your doctor or midwife. There is no obligation on this initial meeting. Should you desire to hire us, we’ll meet again.

2. A team visit to your OB or midwife is one of our prenatal appointments – so that the plan is ready to enact.

3. A third prenatal visit is when we come to your home. We need to know where your home is, especially if we’re coming in the middle of the night. (smile!) On this visit each doula, the expectant mother and her support team all collect phone numbers, prepare on when texting is appropriate, when calling is NECESSARY and how everyone knows what to expect on labor day. A few of mom’s favorite comfort techniques may be practiced and a few reminders about the bullet points from your class will be recalled. Your doulas are officially “On Call” for your birth.

4. On the day you go into labor, you call your doula(s) and they come to your home. Using the comfort measures you learned and practiced in class, they help get and keep your labor progressive. When you decide you’d like to get to the hospital or birthing center, they transport either WITH you or behind in their own vehicle (so no one has to take them back to your home later) – They stay by your side through every contraction – they provide emotional support to you and your husband – making sure he stays nourished and strong – offering him a shoulder rub when his get tired from all the massage he’s given you!
Once the baby is born, the doulas are there to protect the nursing environment, offering you any assistance you may require with positioning, pillows, latching, etc. They then tidy your room and pack up your things to go to postpartum. They try to ensure that you have something to eat so you can rest when they leave, within two hours.

5. The day you return home or the next, the team comes to your home for initial breastfeeding support. The first few days at home can be tough and our doulas are experts and helping your baby to latch well, to resolve sore nipple issues and get your supply well established. 

6. They are on call by phone for the next 2 weeks to answer any issues you may be experiencing (sore stitches, hemorrhoids, plugged ducts, mastitis, baby issues).

7. Within the month you will receive your appointment card to attend your final postpartum visit, Life After Birth, Mother’s Support Circle.
This service by a Platinum Certified Doula is $1200. Our well-trained and supported Graduate Apprentices may be hired solo or as a team for $900.
