Full Spectrum Doulas commit to these values
We will uphold the DONA standards of conduct and ethics for doulas.
We uphold the DONA vision of "a doula for every person who wants one" while maintaining a sustainable lifestyle for the doulas who do this work.
Doula work is based in abundance. We reject the notion of scarcity in birth work or that doulas should be in competition with each other.
We believe in inclusivity and commit to listen and learn from the people who have been excluded from the best care practices in the past and will work to support more diversity in the birth community. We will make decisions by consensus.
We will fight for Reproductive Justice; the human right to maintain personal bodily autonomy, have children, not have children, and to parent those children in safe and sustainable communities.
We believe in providing evidence based information and will stay up to date with the latest research and best practices with ongoing learning and trainings. We reject the culture of fear based information and believe in providing empowering information and sustaining any choice made with true informed consent.
