Wisconsin Doula Association Membership

How to become part of WDA

Launching this Summer 2023!

Thank you for your interest in joining the Wisconsin Doula Association, INC (WDA).

We invite you to join our community and consortium of doulas and perinatal professionals committed to elevating the role of doulas, gaining hands-on experience, and expanding educational opportunities including advanced business knowledge throughout our state.

As a member of the association, we work alongside the doctors, midwives, and medical professionals to ensure positive outcomes for our clients. We bring together seasoned doulas and those new to their practice to offer both quality care for birthing persons and space for doulas to build a strong sense of community and personal growth. 

As a standard of the Association, we strive to be professionally trained and promote advancement through continued education. We hold ourselves to the highest standard of being a doula. WDA members value personal growth, development and collaboration. 

Wisconsin Doulas Association will have members throughout the state, including birthworkers, health & mental health care providers, researchers, and community supporters.
