Birth Center: Doula Program

Doula in Greek means “trusted servant”

It is important for our mothers to be fully supported and cared for during childbirth and throughout their stay at SFGH. We have a wonderful doula program that is available to all mothers. A doula is a woman who is trained to provide physical and emotional support during the labor process. Your doula will stay by your bedside throughout your delivery. If interested in having a doula during your birth experience, please ask your nurse.

We are very proud of our volunteer doula program and are always looking for more volunteers. If interested in being a doula, please call 206-3416.
