The main drive behind our website is to give doulas a place to advertise their services, however, we want to provide a single space where expecting parents can find everything they need.

Charging for our services is important because we have to cover our costs for maintaining and updating this website.

We have worked very hard to keep our costs low in order for our services to be affordable.
Our website is still in its infancy and this is the simplest way to allow users to add video, with the least amount of issues. In the near future we will look into other plugins to incorporate video.
Featured ads appear on the front page, search map and profiles on the website. This is an additional service you can pay for so that your ad will appear more often on the website, thus increasing your chances of gaining clients.
