The Doula Collective of Grande Prairie
wishes to raise awareness about the role of Birth and Postpartum Doulas in our community and the surrounding areas. We provide a referral service for women, and their families, and deliver continuing education to our members, health care professionals, and the public at large.
“The presence of a Doula is a major advantage for physicians, the women and their families. They provide a level of support that is often very difficult to achieve in a busy maternity care service. We see increased satisfaction with the birth experience, lower intervention rates and excellent infant outcomes.
” ~Dr Michael Klein, award-winning & world-renown physician scientist, author & leader in the field of normal birth

The heart of the Grande Prairie Doula Collective is to raise awareness of current evidence-based information that encourages families during the childbirth years (including infant loss, pregnancy, birth, and post partum).
