Our doulas are located throughout New Jersey and New York. We provide services in Middlesex, Mercer, Monmouth, Union, Hudson, Essex, Somerset, Morris, & Bergen Counties. We also serve Manhattan, Bronx, Brooklyn, and Staten Island.
Our company was created specifically to increase the number of positive birthing experiences of black and Latin American women in our communities. All of our doulas and childbirth educators identify as Black or Hispanic/Latin American. Y sí, hablamos español.
The majority of us are both vaccinated and boosted against Covid-19. During this pandemic, we are limiting the amount of clients we take on at any given time to ensure both your safety and ours.
Our rates are comparative to other doulas in the area. There are only so many clients that we can accept in a month, as births are unpredictable, so we have to space our services so that we can ensure that we are present for yours. The prices we charge allow us to have a sustainable business while allowing our doulas to earn a living.
Yes, we do!
No. Midwives are medical professionals that are trained to help with the delivery of a baby. A doula is not a medical professional. They may be certified with an agency or organization, but do not provide any medical care. A doula educates and supports birthing people both physically and emotionally without administering medical support.
No. Baby nurses are similar to nannies in that they focus solely on providing care to babies whereas postpartum doulas are more specially trained to provide support to the entire family. This includes expertise in breastfeeding, recognizing mood disorders and normal recovery, and more. Postpartum doulas are also forever evolving in order to continue to provide evidence-based care. Some baby nurses have received formal training, although most have not. Baby nurses also tend to not be formal business owners, therefore may not carry liability insurance. All of the Repose Birth Services doulas are trained and certified in the field, carry liability insurance, and are vetted for safety and security concerns.
Doulas are for people who are having a home or water birth, but they are also for those who are giving birth in a hospital or birth center, choose to get an epidural, are having a c-section, adoptive parents, and any other situation that you can think of. The benefits of having a doula are endless. Click around to learn more about what we do!
As soon as possible! We want to make sure that our team reserves your time, so the earlier the better. Most of our clients book services at least 3-4 months before their due date. Also, it's never too early to start building a relationship with your doula, as they are going to be there for one of the most memorable experiences you'll ever have.
