DuPage Doula Network
Connection & Support for Growing Families and Birth Professionals
Hey there! We're glad you found us. We're here to let you know that you don't have to do it all alone!
Whether you are becoming a parent, serving local families, or running a birth support business,
we'd love to get to know you, share our experiences, and lighten the load.
We were four doulas working solo in Chicago's suburbs until we realized we could offer the best service to our community (and have more fun!) if we teamed up. In 2014 we joined forces, creating DuPage Doula Network to build a reliable circle of birth workers, to develop relationships with area businesses and medical providers,
and to support and learn from each other.
We believe in lifting each other up, and we'd love to work with you too.
Services We Offer
Too often, doulas start on fire with passion and good intentions, but quickly burn out from the stressors of isolation and business tedium. Membership in DDN provides the support system every doula needs for professional development and personal nourishment. Check out the many benefits of joining our network.
Birth Prep Workshops
Customized just for you!
We find that many families struggle to find enough time to commit to a multi-week childbirth education course. If this sounds like you, gather your partner & your friends and schedule a birth prep workshop on the topics you care the most about, such as VBAC, comfort measures, postpartum recovery, or top doula labor tips.
Birth team, baby care, and more!
When a baby is on the way, you've got a lot of decisions to make about your health care and family support. We live in area with so many choices, it can be hard to know where to start. That's why we are proud to offer you a list of top-quality, experienced professionals to care for you every step of the way.
