Indy Doula Associates

Nurture. Guidance. Connections.

Indy Doula Associates provide non-judgmental emotional, physical and mental support to navigate you through uncertainties surrounding pregnancy, labor, birth and parenting.  We help families feel secure in their birth choices by fostering their ideal birth experience, educational opportunities, and introduction to a community network of professionals. Our goal is to clearly outline the options of expectant parents, some they might not know they have. Indy Doula Associates' mission is that you always feel a kind nurturing spirit, that their guidance helps with your birthing decisions, and you make healthy, lasting connections within the community along your path to parenthood and beyond.




say what webWe get this a lot: "What do you do for a living?" "I'm a doula." "A dou-wha?" Although doulas in the modern sense have been around for well over 20 years, many people have never heard of one. Indeed, the word doula is very old: it comes from the ancient Greek meaning “a woman who serves."  Today, the term is used to refer to a trained and experienced professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to a mother before, during and just after birth.

Here at Indy Doula Associates, we often describe a doula as your pregnancy travel agent - we guide you through your labor and birth. We have mapped out and been on many trips through "labor land." We know where all the potholes are, every detour, the best pit stops and how to keep you comfortable and focused during those long bumpy trails. We will hold your hand and remind you what you are feeling and doing is normal, even if it is difficult, and at the same time we will protect your birth space as you undertake your powerful journey. We do all of this and more as we help mothers and their partners to experience:

  • more self-confidence
  • secure and cared for
  • shorter labors
  • fewer complications
  • greater success with breastfeeding
