Most doulas on this site are members of Doula UK and as such, adhere to a Code of Conduct. Doula UK also has a complaints procedure and a number of Mentors who guide and support new doulas as they begin working with families. This means that when you choose to work with a member of Doula UK you know that your doula has a certain high standard of practice to keep to, an ethical approach to her doula work and has support should she need it.
There are a number of doulas listed on this site who are not yet members of Doula UK. This is because they are still finishing the course of study necessary before they are eligible to join the organisation. In the meantime, they are free to work with women, with the support and guidance of the Cambs Doulas team and as long as those women have made an informed decision to choose that particular doula. Very new doulas and Mentored Doulas who are members of Doula UK are often a cheaper option, so please don’t rule them out when choosing a doula!
Each doula who is a member of Doula UK will have a Doula UK logo by her name.
If you have any questions about any of the Cambs Doulas or any aspect of the way we work, do feel free to get in touch.
