Welcome To Salem Doulas

Whether you are currently pregnant, have recently welcomed a new addition to your family or are in the planning stages of starting a family, we are here for you!  

We are a group of birth workers serving families in Salem, Keizer, Silverton & the wider Mid-Willamette Valley. Working together as Salem Doulas ensures that each one of us can provide reliable, knowledgeable and caring continuous birth support.  Each Birth Doula is devoted to, and passionate about, supporting families throughout pregnancy, labor and postpartum.

What We Do

Birth Doulas


  • Recognize birth as a key experience that both mom and her partner will remember all their lives.
  • Understand the physiology of birth and the emotional needs of a woman in labor.
  • Assist in birth plan preparation. 
  • Stay with the mom & her support person throughout labor & delivery. 
  • Provide emotional support, physical comfort measures & an objective viewpoint, as well as helping mom & her support person get the information they need to make informed decisions.
  • Facilitate communication between mom, her partner, and her clinical care providers.
  • Perceive their role as nurturing and protecting mom & her partner's memory of the birth experience.
  • Allow mom's partner to participate at his/her comfort level.

Postpartum Doulas


  • Offer education, companionship and nonjudgmental support during the postpartum fourth trimester
  • Assist with newborn care, family adjustment, meal preparation and light household tidying
  • Offer evidence-based information on infant feeding, emotional and physical recovery from birth, infant soothing and coping skills for new parents and make appropriate referrals when necessary
