Working together to provide the support you've been missing.
The Madison Doula Collective consists of Madison-area doulas who have come together to support one another so as to better support our clients. We are a group of doulas who support inclusivity, anti-racism, & reproductive justice. We offer many different services to expectant and new parents, including: birth & postpartum doula services, group prenatals, prenatal yoga, childbirth education, lactation support, placenta preparation, fertility support, miscarriage, loss, & abortion support.
I hired the Madison Doula Collective for my second baby's birth and had a great experience. All the doulas were friendly, knowledgeable, and clearly committed to the work, and I loved the peace of mind that came with knowing our back up doula well if it came to that. The monthly group prenatal meetings were such a fun and informative way to connect with other local families. I highly recommend working with the Madison Doula Collective - they're a fantastic group of doulas and such a valuable resource to Madison area families!
Madison Doula Collective is amazing! I would not even consider doing a birth without them. From the moment of pregnancy to months after delivery, this team is wonderful. They are supportive, quick to respond, knowledgeable, and have so many connections to all the resources you could ever need as a [parent]. I've done both my sons' birth's with the Doulas and I cannot recommend them enough. They are helpful for any type of birth plan, but even more so for an all natural birth. I am so grateful for their community and support of my pregnancies and birth. I hope to be working with them again in the future.
All the doulas in the collective were extremely warm and welcoming. I was able to meet them at their monthly meet and greet (pre-Covid) which was reassuring in case Claire wasn't available. Claire was so wonderful. I ended up giving birth a few weeks before my due date at the end of April and I'm so grateful Claire was there, especially with the constantly-changing Covid protocols. Claire was invaluable to have to help us talk through an unplanned induction and an amazing support for both me and my partner during a very speedy active labor, especially when I wanted to give up. Claire also captured beautiful pictures of our birth. Thankfully Claire was available for my birth, but I would've felt comfortable with any of the [others] serving as my doula. Working with the MDC was a great experience!
