Doula UK is the leading organisation for doulas in the UK, with a network of member doulas nearing 700 in number. Doula UK was founded in 2001 as a not-for-profit organisation.

Support Reborn

The world has changed along with our birthing and parenting practices. The needs of new families are sometimes forgotten and misunderstood.

We represent a new era of compassion; learning from the past and looking to the future. We nurture our membership, so they can unconditionally support the needs of everyone involved in pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period.

We aim to…

  • Promote life-changing support for women in the childbearing year, regardless of circumstance
  • Nurture the doula community; protecting parents and health professionals
  • Advocate for better support for UK families
