To create a local standard of doula professionalism through care of our families, respectful collaboration with healthcare providers, and continuing education for doulas. To create a connection between local birth professionals and Western New York families.

We honor the doctors, nurses, midwives, and other birth professionals who are serving the families of Western New York. The Collective is working to define the role of the doula in the same space with medical care providers to create a collaborative and mutually respectful atmosphere.

Training, mentoring, professional development, and support from and for doulas is essential. We believe that by providing opportunities for growth for new doulas we strengthen our community of doulas. The Buffalo Doula Collective trains and mentors doulas providing a doula certification with Life Cycles Collective Doulas (LCCD) of WNY. We provide resources, support, and opportunity for continued education to ensure doulas are fully prepared to meet the needs of the community.
