SLIDING SCALE BIRTH DOULA SERVICES
If you are choosing parenthood, the Bay Area Doula Project may be able to connect you to a doula group who can provide you with the care you desire.
Below is a list of sliding-scale, low-fee options for birth doula services in the Bay Area. Please contact these services directly for more information about the birth doula care they offer and their exact fees.
What A Doula
What A Doula is a group practice of doulas and birth advocates that specialize in birth, vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC), last-minute doula services, early breastfeeding support, and postpartum support for expectant families in San Francisco & the East Bay. They offer sliding-scale services because they firmly believe that having a doula is a right rather than a privilege, and that all pregnant mothers and families deserve to have a doula. For a complete list of services they offer and to find a doula, please visit their website: http://www.whatadoula.com/home.
Natural Resources is San Francisco's oldest pregnancy, birth and early parenting resource center & retail store. Serving families for almost 25 years, they are located in San Francisco's Mission District. For more information about the birth doula services they offer, please visit their website naturalresources-sf.com or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Teenage Pregnancy and Parenting Program (TAPP)
The Teenage Pregnancy and Parenting Program is a program that supports young parents between ages of 12 to 24 in their choice to start their families young. They provide a childbirth education class with a doula and a nurse, as well as a program coordinator for the teenage pregnancy and parenting program. Each person who participates in the childbirth class can and will receive a doula whenever they request one. They also have doulas available for young parents who are not a part of the childbirth class. They also provide case management services for youth between 12-24. For more information about their services or about becoming a volunteer doula for this program, contact email@example.com.
