Required for Service Sites
Services Sites advertise education, labor support, midwifery services or a birth center. While many doulas and midwives provide childbirth education for their clients, unless the web site specifically states clients can obtain childbirth education services without purchasing a doula package, searchers get confused and frustrated with the directory. For this reason, web sites will only be listed in categories in which services are currently advertised.
This site should be listed as offering:
Labor Support or Doula
Out of Hospital Birth Center
Please Note: Your services will be listed once per category unless you serve more than one state or province.
You do not need to list the specific name of a city or county. If more appropriate for your service area, please use a phrase such as "northeastern locations", "tri-county area" or "metro area". Think about how families in your service area would refer to the communities you serve - these are the families who will be searching your part of the directory. You will not be listed for multiple cities or counties - if you submit more than one location, reviewers are required to choose one.

Please note: By submitting your site to this directory you agree that inclusion in the directory is at the discretion of the editors of this site. Inclusion in this directory does not infer that a site only discusses natural childbirth, but that information at that site will be useful to families preparing for a natural childbirth.
