The Golden Gate Doula Associates was founded in 2016 by Jennifer Darwin and has quickly become a trusted resource for all your maternity and postpartum needs. Located in the Dog Patch Neighborhood of San Francisco. 

We understand that your pregnancy, birth, and postpartum period could be unpredictable, we want to provide emotional and physical support throughout that process. Our vetted doulas offer non-judgmental support in the way that YOU chose to give birth.

 

The GGDA has changed the way some physicians and nurses view doulas, by facilitating the birth team approach and by establishing strong relationships with many prestigious care providers, midwives, and hospitals in the area. The doulas on our platform are reputable and well known for not promoting an "us against them" atmosphere and working in tandem with the entire birth team, thus providing a complete circle of care.

How exactly does it work?

Don't waste hours online searching through countless websites, Yelp pages, and social media looking for that perfect fit, we have done that work for you! 

WE DELIVER FULLY VETTED, QUALIFIED AND COMPASSIONATE BIRTH & POSTPARTUM PROFESSIONALS THROUGH OUR MONTHLY MEET THE DOULA EVENTS OR DIRECTLY TO YOUR INBOX.
