The Doula's Creed

We solemnly pledge our personal support and dedication to our new mothers and their families.

We will strive diligently to assist our mothers in their transition from womanhood to motherhood in order to promote health infants and strong families.

Where there is fear, We will offer comfort.

Where there is despair, We will bring hope.

Where there is misunderstanding, We will advise.

Where there is loneliness, We will be a friend.

Where threre is reluctance, We will encourage.

We recognize the confidential nature of our profession and promise to uphild high ethical standars in the performance of our duties. We shall remain loyal to the philosophy of doula care and do all in our power to ensure its success.

May we empower ourselves and others with these words.
