The CARE Network is a great place to look for doulas in the area and other individuals who are supporting birthing moms and families. This site also has other information on resources for pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. 

I have had the joy of working with many doulas in the area. Here are a few I have had the privilege to work with and get to know personally now highly recommend: 


Birth Classes

Well Rounded Birth Center offers an amazing 8 week birthing class course that prepares you and your partner to understand your birthing options, helps you prepare a birth plan, and gives you the tools needed to work towards having the birthing experience you desire. This is the class my husband and I took before the birth of our first son and could not more highly recommend it. The cost of this class is $250.
