    Support Reborn

    The world has changed along with our birthing and parenting practices. The needs of new families are sometimes forgotten and misunderstood.

    We represent a new era of compassion; learning from the past and looking to the future. We nurture our membership, so they can unconditionally support the needs of everyone involved in pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period.

    • Promote life-changing support for women in the childbearing year, regardless of circumstance
    • Nurture the doula community; protecting parents and health professionals
    • Advocate for better support for UK families

However if we are made aware of any circumstance which we consider would preclude a member working with your family or in the presence of children, we will rescind membership immediately. Please ask your doula for references, and a DBS certificate if you feel it is necessary (please note that having a DBS certificate is not a condition of Doula UK membership).

    Doula UK also has a complaints and feedback system if, for some reason, you are not happy with the service from your doula.
