As a bonus, we handle all of the administrative details like invoicing , so you can focus on supporting families.
For Experienced Doulas
If you are an experienced doula, joining a team like Balanced Birth Support has many benefits. As a large group we provide backups for each other in the event there is a birth conflict. We also share experiences, evidenced-based information, and advice when there are questions or concerns that arise, and that in turn helps all of us become better doulas. As an experienced doula you bring a set of experiences to the table that can help other doulas, and in turn you learn from others.
