Who do you recommend that I hire?

As an organization, we do not make recommendations on who you should hire to assist you during your childbearing years. Our members do agree to abide by their certifying organizations’ Standards of Practice and/or Code of Ethics (birth & postpartum doulas agree to abide by DONA’s, regardless of their own certifying organization), but TVBN does not have its own. We do not have any requirements for our members beyond this.

We recommend perusing the member profiles, visiting each individual’s website, and writing down questions to ask each of the ones you decide to consult. Writing down questions ahead of time ensures that you get all of them answered!
