Please register to attend one of our upcoming Doula Information Nights. Registration is free, however space is limited, so we encourage expectant parents to register in advance. Each registration allows for birthing parent plus a labor partner, no need to reserve separately.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a free, informational night designed to help expectant parents better understand the role of a birth and postpartum doula and what the scope of their work is. The doula's attending Mama & Me's Doula Information night do not work for Mama & Me. Mama & Me does not prescreen, nor do we personally recommend any doula's that may attend this event; we simply offer our space as a place to connect expectant parents and doulas with each other. We recommend that expectant couples follow up with a more comprehensive screening and interview before hiring any doula.


Join other new and expectant parents for a night of FREE education on what a doula is, what a doula does, and how a doulaŹ¼s presence can benefit your birth and help you adjust to life at home with your little one! 

Doulas from in the Greater Boston Area will be on hand to answer your questions, offer personalized referrals, and represent some of the wonderful variety of personalities, ages, backgrounds, and skills you can find in a birth or postpartum doula. Expectant parents will have time to meet individual doulas and conduct brief interviews with them.

We will answer many common questions birth and postpartum doula services, such as:

  • What does a doula do?
  • What do services usually entail?
  • Why would I want to hire a doula?
  • How would a doula work with my partner?
  • How would I go about finding the right doula?

Studies* have shown many benefits of working with a doula, including:

  • Shorter labors
  • Fewer requests for epidurals
  • Less frequent use of forceps or vacuum
  • Increased confidence in birth partners
  • Fewer cesareans [OR Lower cesarean rate]
  • Increased success with breastfeeding
