A guide and ally to support your family's birth experience.
Doulas provide physical relief, emotional support, and mental preparation for your birth journey.
Throughout time, women have played this sacred duty of supporting mothers through pregnancy, childbirth, and mothering. The Womb Room provides experienced Doulas in Baltimore to be your guide, as Birth Doulas or Postpartum Doulas, either in person with safety precautions, or virtually online.

Support through Pregnancy, Birth, & Postpartum
In Person Birth Doula Services:
Doulas have always attended births to be in close physical and emotional support of a woman in labor. Due to the health crisis, however, regulations are temporarily in place to disallow anyone but your partner from attending a birth.
This means that Doulas are not being allowed to enter most hospitals. For these women, we are providing Virtual Doula Services, detailed below.
Doulas are still able to attend Homebirths, however. If you would like a Doula to attend your birth in person, with a mix of in person and phone support, reserve this service. Your Doula will use a mask and follow social distancing guidelines.
Virtual Doula Packages:
Virtual doula support is an adapted form of in-person pregnancy, birth, and postpartum support.
To fit to these unique times, remote support focuses even more on the family. This service is just as much for the seasoned parent as it is for a family that is welcoming their first child home.
We provide emotional and educational support through mediums such as Zoom, email, text, and phone calls. This way we can serve people outside of Baltimore and Maryland, and support people around the country with virtual doula services.

Postpartum Doula Services:
Caring for a newborn (and yourself) is hard work!
Whether it is all new to you, or you have other kids and just need a break, we're there. The Womb Room Doulas in Baltimore are equipped and eager to support you however they can.
The Womb Room offers education and support customized to the needs of the family.
This can include: education on newborn care, infant feeding, basic lactation questions, baby wearing information, postpartum healing advice, discussing your birth story, nutritional support, providing community resources, and lending a non-judgemental listening ear.
Let us take the edge off by holding and caring for the baby or older siblings, cleaning up the home, running errands, or spending the night so you can get some much needed rest.
We are here for you during your entire fourth trimester!
