The Red Deer Doula Association is a collection of doulas working to provide each other with support, exposure and continuing education. Through our regular meetings, monthly guest speakers, our Facebook group and page, social gatherings and public events, we work to help doulas grow, learn and educate. We are a nonprofit organization with both birth and postpartum doulas, whose passion is to provide families in our community with these valuable services and resources. The Red Deer Doula Association is known in the birth and postpartum community as a trusted source for educated and well respected doulas. Families turn to the Association looking for qualified and well trained birth and postpartum help. To meet this high standard of excellence, all Doulas of the Association are required to have training through a recognized organization such as DONA or CAPPA.
Our website receives a high volume of traffic and has proven to be a widely used source of information within the community. Potential clients turn to the website to view the biographies of doulas and often “meet” their future doula for the first time in this way. Our resource page has a listing of Research and Business websites to which you would be added upon sponorship. The Association also promotes itself by attending trade shows, and providing and or hosting educational events for doulas and other members of our community.
Your business membership should be an opportunity to network with Doulas working in the birth community and ultimately increase your own business exposure through such networking and website traffic, public events, donating prizes, our client resource packages social Media and business decals or thank you cards. We are always open to feedback and suggestions about how we can fulfill these roles better.
We are excited about your interest in the Association and look forward to meeting you in person.
