Due to concern and overwhelming confusion regarding the status of various CMS waivers and funding for Medical Assistance in Minnesota, we are having to temporarily pause on taking doula clients on Medical Assistance. We know this is disappointing and frustrating for patients, but we hope that the chaos created by officials the last 3 months on the federal level can be sorted out quickly.
Our Next Doula Information Night is November 1st, 2017 at 7PM
at 4590 Scott Trail, Suite 200 in Eagan

Why are your prices lower than the current rate for individual doulas?
As a non-profit organization, it’s part of our mission to make sure that our services are offered on a sliding fee when insurance doesn’t cover a service. Our leadership believes in the importance of doula services, but recognizes the need to make them affordable for all families, regardless of insurance coverage.
How our your doulas paid? Do I pay them too?
They are paid hourly and no, you don’t pay them separately. That would get confusing!
