Doulas are professional care providers that support families. Listen to episode 73 to understand more about how doula contracts work and what you need to look out for when you hire your birth team.
When it comes to putting a contract together, it's a conversation... it can be intimidating for both sides (parents and the doula). But the conversation can be a hugely productive way to set up expectations for everybody . It's okay to negotiate and talk... but also respecting our profession. - Emily Flynn
