With Women is currently in the process of making our various programs even better! During this time we are temporarily suspending our On-Call Doula program so that we can focus on this important work. We do have many doulas available and willing to work for the same price as our On-Call Doula program. We encourage you to Contact Us and let us know what you're looking for in a doula including price ranges. We most likely have a great doula to meet your needs. If not, we are happy to help you find one outside of our group. The On-Call Doula program will be back in the new year!
Are you interested in having one-on-one professional care during your birth? Would you like additional physical, emotional and informational support for yourself and your family during labor?
The With Women On-call Birth Doula Program offers gentle, non-judgmental support to all birthing families at certain hospitals. Currently we serve Exempla Lutheran Medical Center, Presbyterian/St. Luke's Medical Center (P/SL), University of Colorado Hospital, Good Samaritan Medical Center and Saint Joseph Hospital. If you are planning a natural birth, birth with an epidural, or are birthing by scheduled cesarean section, our doulas are here to support you.
Doulas are trained professionals who understand the birthing process, and can offer comfort, guidance, and reassurance to the birthing mother and all who are there to support her. Our doulas are on-call for registered clients 24/7. Clients enjoy as many prenatal visits as they would like with our doulas during Doula Consultation and Client Workshop events, as well as unlimited email and phone support throughout their pregnancy.
The doula on-call at the time you are admitted to the hospital will join you and support you throughout your birth experience. If you are still laboring after 12 hours, an additional doula may come to assist your doula, if needed. Your doula will stay with you for one to two hours after your birth to assist with first feedings, take pictures, and help you get settled. Your doula will do a follow-up visit at the hospital one or two days after your birth.
The fee for this program is $500 - significantly less than the average cost of a doula in the Denver area which ranges from $650-$900. With Women will assist you in submitting for insurance reimbursement for doula services.
If you would like additional information about the With Women On-call Birth Doula Program, please attend an Doula Consultation and Client Workshop. Doula consultations workshops are held the first Saturday of the month from 11:00 - 12:30 pm, and the third Tuesday of the month 6:30 - 8:00 pm. These events occur in the Arvada/Wheat Ridge area. The Saturday events are child friendly; the Tuesday events are adults only. Please be aware that children may be present for the more relaxed Saturday events. Please call 303-674-1685 or email us to register.
