The San Francisco Doula Group (SFDG) is a community of doulas practicing in the greater Bay Area. Understanding the needs of expectant mothers and their partners, the organization created sfdoulagroup.com as a resource for referrals to trained, experienced birth and postpartum professionals. Each doula featured in the website directory is active in the local birth community, participates in continuing education and agrees to participate in regular peer reviews in order to ensure professionalism, quality of service and open communication within the birthing community and with those we serve. Of course, every doula on the site also fully understands their role as a non-medical birth and/or postpartum professional. Doulas of the SFDG have a broad spectrum of experience and training, so when interviewing doulas for birth and/or postpartum work, please ask about their respective specialties and discuss your anticipated needs.
