Everyone is dedicated to something. I am dedicated to creating a safe space for every woman, so she has the freedom to be her own unique, fully expressed self, as she steps into being a mother.
MEET OUR DOULAS
To be filled with Wonder or astonishment. I am awestruck by the wisdom of the female body, the baby and the utter privilege to support families during such a powerfully intimate transformation.
Boston Doula Circle is a pioneer of the "Doula Team Model".
What does working in a team model mean?
The current standard for doulas is working alone, in what we call solo practice. An emerging alternative is the team model, where a small group of doulas work together with the same clients and share an on-call schedule.
Are there advantages to a group that uses a team model?
Collective wisdom - The doulas in our group have a wide range of experience and expertise. We share this collective wisdom with each other and with you!
No need for back-up - In solo practice, doulas need to find back-up -- sometimes at the last minute -- in cases of emergency, illness or conflicting births. In a group model, this isn't necessary. You will always have a doula you know, who knows you!
Always an energized doula - Imagine your birth is one of what one colleague refers to as "the leisurely variety." Eventually you may get tired, and so may your doula! In a team model, you would instead get a well-rested doula bringing a new burst of energy to your birthing space.
Who are we?
The doulas in our group include:
Mothers (among us, we’ve birthed five children)
A yoga instructor
A massage therapist
A Certified Lactation Consultant
Spinning Babies practitioners
A Hypnobirthing instructor and practitioners
A Lamaze instructor
A placenta encapsulation specialist
A practitioner of ecstatic birth
(And, yes, that’s all in four women!)

"Dena was an absolute pleasure and blessing to work with. This was our 5th child and me as the husband and coach still have no idea of how I can really help my poor wife when she's in such pain. Dena helped my wife and I through the process. She communicated well with the nurses and doctors and gave us the confidence we needed to have a beautiful delivery. This is the first time my wife delivered without an epideral and I believe it was in large part to Dena's help. Thank you Dena! I can highly recommend her. "
