The Metropolitan Doula Group was founded on January 10, 1999 in response to a need that aspiring doulas expressed to further their education and commitment to birth after attending labor assistant training workshops.
Certified doulas, women in the process of becoming certified, and those interested in labor assisting, participate in on-line discussion groups where members discuss how best to meet the challenges of labor support in hospitals, birth centers and at home.

The Metropolitan Doula Group serves as a forum for doulas to meet, talk and support each other in the work they do. We welcome doulas from all walks of life regardless of training, certification, background or beliefs surrounding birth.
The Metropolitan Doula Group supports community and education to promote the professional growth of our members. We are committed to providing a safe forum where doulas can process the experiences of their work.
We believe every woman deserves to be treated with dignity and respect, and are committed to supporting women regardless of their individual choices for labor and birth.
