Blooma Doulas

Supporting you in an empowered birth experience

Educational, Emotional, and Physical Support

for Families from Pregnancy through Birth

Our mission is to ensure that families in the Twin Cities have access to evidence-based information; find providers that share their values and understand their needs; and feel safe, supported, and loved throughout their pregnancy and  birth.

Your birth experience has a profound effect on your identity as a parent and as a person. The joyful time of pregnancy and birth can be overwhelming. The Blooma Doulas can serve as your guide as you move through this process providing support, tenderness, and wisdom. Often, our modern culture tends to shroud pregnancy and birth in myth and misinformation. The Blooma Doulas will provide the clarity and expertise allowing you to have an empowered birth experience.  

This is why we rock!
