South Florida Doula Association

Educate. Advocate. Elevate.

“It takes a village to raise a child” but the village has to be strong too. It is why we believe in supporting one another, through collaboration over competition.”

The Doulas Care Collective is a network of South Florida Doulas who focus on perinatal support. We have come together to provide access to peer support, continuing education, business development opportunities, and further expand community awareness. With a shared belief in fostering a sense of community over the competition, we know that we are stronger together than we are apart, and through the support and encouragement we receive from each other, we can strengthen our work and provide the most consistent, authentic, and beautiful childbearing experience.

For Doulas

About the DCC

For Parents

What is a Doula?



The word “Doula” has greek origin and means “woman who serves”, but we have come a long way and find that it isn’t exactly a genderified role. To be at service is the very essence of our work. If you were to look back over time and still in many indigenous cultures, there are those individuals – usually women – who tend to the needs of the Mother in labor, nurture the family throughout the childbearing year, and even care for the sick and dying.

Ultimately, a doula is a companion who offers dedicated support when major life transitions are underway.

The DCC’s 4 Pillars

Peer Support

We support one another through guidance and holding space. We discuss, share, and provide constructive feedback for collective growth. 

Community Partners

Doulas are one part of perinatal care. Chiropractors, Midwives, and Pelvic Floor Therapists are just a few examples of other professionals we work to connect with.

Business Development

Contracts, billing, and taxes. Oh My! Learn how to grow a successful and sustainable business that will benefit the doula, the parents, and the community.

Self Care

The mom holds the baby and the doula holds the mom, but who holds the doula? We hold you so that you can continue to do what you do without burning yourself out.

Women Supporting Women
