Formerly Journey to Motherhood LLC, Doulas of San Antonio is committed to providing inclusive reproductive health, birth, and postpartum support, advocating for care that supports autonomy, and creating a culture committed to providing evidence-based education.
Curiosity - We are committed to asking questions and continue to seek knowledge to create a safe and supported experience.
Collaboration - We work alongside and network with individuals and organizations working to improve and support inclusive care. Our support to clients is a team effort, ensuring complete care through each journey.
Integrity - Create trusting relationships through responsible actions that reflect the many intersections of birth work.
Community - Work to provide equitable access to support and educational services through a reproductive justice perspective.
We are trained to understand the anatomy and physiology of birth and the emotional and physical demands of the postpartum period. We share evidence-based resources and support your informed choices for your care. We help navigate the culture surrounding birth and facilitate conversations with care providers. We assist you in your journey, providing the unconditional support and care that you need.
Your doula support team will meet with you in your home to plan and prepare for your birth and postpartum experience, tailoring support to your unique needs. We are available throughout your service by phone or email and go on-call towards the end of your pregnancy. We’ll meet you at home or at your birthing space when you ask us to and remain with you for a bit after birth to support your transition into recovery.
We’ll be in contact with you during your first 48-hours after birth. Then, we’ll schedule a time to come and provide postpartum care for you within the first two weeks of birth. Care can include an extra set of hands, help with light chores, having a snack made, and more – including feeding support & infant care reminders. Afterward, we’ll continue to check in, providing resources as needed, or just to say hi and have lunch!
