Find a Doula in Michigan

The doulas listed here are all self-employed and have designed their own service packages and set their own fees. You are encouraged to contact individual doulas to determine who will best be able to meet your unique needs. When a business name is listed instead of an individual, you will typically find two or more doulas working in a partnership or doula collective. The locations listed are to give you a general idea, however, many doulas travel up to one hour to serve clients so don’t be afraid to reach out. To learn more about doulas and tips for hiring a doula, check our What is a Doula? A consumer’s guide to getting the help you need

All service providers listed are independent from Center for the Childbearing Year. Featured listings are paid ads and those are listed first. Inclusion of a doula business on this list is NOT an endorsement of any one individual or group by the Center. You are encouraged to investigate individuals further by checking references and credentials.

The first weeks immediately postpartum are a wonderful time, but can also be very overwhelming. I offer emotional, physical and logistical support (cooking, cleaning, etc.) in your recovery and transition to motherhood so you can spend your time and energy bonding with, and getting to know your newborn.

The postpartum period is a time of transition, learning, growing, loving and, sometimes frustration. Our goal is to help families find their way through this challenging time by supporting their own parenting instincts. We also help with practical household issues — dishes, cooking, light cleaning etc., as well as baby care, recovery and breastfeeding.
