Birth Doula Support

The team at the Harmony Doula Group is comprised of certified birth doulas, postpartum doulas, midwife assistants, childbirth educators, and lactation educators, together having over 40 years of experience supporting families through childbirth. Read more about us on our Harmony Doula Group team page. We are located conveniently near the Altamont foothills and are able to assist moms throughout the East Bay, LaMorInda corridor, Tri-Valley, Delta Valley, and parts of the Central Valley.

The Harmony Doula Group offers Birth Doula Support to anyone choosing to delivering their babies in hospital settings, birth centers, or at home.

Because we understand that the needs of birthing people vary according to each person's own experience and desires, we offer a wide variety of packages and services. If there is something you would like to include in a package that you do not see listed here, please let us know and we will see if we can incorporate it.

The doula teams are mentored by and have access to their mentor sponsor throughout a labor.
