Our Purpose

Central Virginia Doulas was born after two local moms, not having the support they needed, struggled with their first postpartum experiences. We exist to provide compassionate, whole-family care that is evidence-based and judgment-free, including childbirth education and preparation, postpartum doula care, placenta processing, and bereavement support.

We take the stress out of postpartum planning. With years of experience providing care for new families in central Virginia, we’re ready to share compassionate, judgment-free support during this tender period in your family’s story.
