Request for Traditional Birth Doula Services
CVD is a birth justice organization providing comprehensive doula support with a focus on vulnerable communities in the Chicago-land area. Doulas provide educational, physical and emotional support before, during and immediately after labor and childbirth. A doula does not provide any type of medical care.
A Chicago Volunteer Doula is a labor support professional who has chosen to commit time and energy to helping pregnant people and their families in Chicago. Our doulas come from a variety of backgrounds. They are social workers, childcare workers, cab drivers, community organizers, accountants, stay-at-home moms, midwifery students, artists, activists, nurses, lawyers, teachers, yoga instructors and massage therapists.
Our doulas celebrate different racial, ethnic, cultural and religious backgrounds and some are fluent in Spanish, Russian and Polish to name a few. CVD doulas include women, men and gender non-conforming or trans people, as well as members of both straight and LGBTQI communities. Some of our doulas have disabilities. No matter their background ALL of our doulas are committed to providing the best doula support to the clients we serve. If you feel you would not be comfortable receiving services from a doula who may not be from the same community as you or may come from a different background please let us know and we will be happy to refer you to a community based doula program or get you a list of private doulas.
