The Houston Doula Cooperative is doulas working in cooperation with one another to provide resources and education to their community through workshops and monthly events.
We aim to encourage education, empowerment, and community among new and expectant parents, as well as offer families support and encouragement throughout their childbearing years. By building on current research and ancient wisdom, we offer classes, workshops, products, community events and services in order to help grow healthy, peaceful, and strong families and individuals.
The Houston Doula Cooperative is intent on building confident, attached, healthy families through education and connection to resources, while also giving new and expectant parents tools for a healthy, confident, peaceful pregnancy, birth and parenting experience.
"Our first choice was Cole. She was there for me whenever I needed her, she helped me through a 27 hour labor... I had a wonderful birth experience with her there every step of the way!"
"My HDC doula gave me the confidence to deliver without an epidural (although I was insisting on one). She encouraged me to listen to my body and my instincts... I delivered a 10 lb. 10 oz. baby boy without any drugs and feel very blessed.. The birth of my son was liberating!"
" After experiencing pretty bad baby blues after my first son's birth, I knew that I wanted to do something differently with my second child. My doula provided that."
"Without Lesley’s presence, knowledge and encouragement, our daughters delivery could have been a very traumatic experience. However, it turned out to be a memorable and successful one!"
"She helped guide and support my husband in helping me through labor, and was a calming and encouraging presence."
"I was a bit nervous about my first hospital birth (after two beautiful, midwife-assisted births out of the hospital). Kimberly was an excellent resource beforehand: encouraging me, suggesting things to plan for to be more comfortable, etc. On the days leading up to my birth she was constantly available to answer my questions by text or phone and continued to be an encouragment when I went past my due date."
