Doula Registration CSM Ozaukee

Why a doula?“If a doula were a drug, it would be unethical not to use it.” - Dr. John Kennell

Our doulas provide continuous support to birthing families. They bring their passion for birth, resources of their training and experience to empower and assist families to help achieve the healthiest, most satisfying birthing experience possible.

The Columbia St. Mary’s Ozaukee doulas are trained and certified through DONA International, the world’s leader in evidence-based doula training, certification and continuing education. Many of our doulas hold additional credentials in various areas of pregnancy, including childbirth education and prenatal fitness, making them some of the most valuable and experienced doulas in the profession. 

The CSM-Ozaukee doula program is one of the only hospital-based doula programs in the country, where the doulas are “on staff.”   Once you register for the program, the doula on call will join you shortly after you are admitted. The cost to the patient is $75.00.

If you haven't already done so, please join us at our monthly “Meet the Doulas” gathering held the 3rd Sunday* of each month at 6:00 pm in the family waiting room – just outside the birth center doors to learn more about the doula program, meet the doulas, and learn more about how we can assist you in welcoming your new little one.

We have a limited number of  doulas so this program operates on a first come, first served basis.  Submitting your $75.00 fee holds your place in our Doula Program.  Given the unpredictable nature of childbirth, there may be a few additional spaces added each month so you are welcome to continue to check this website.  You can contact our doula staff with questions at 262-243-6651 (this number is checked a couple of times a week, so we appreciate your patience).  

*This may change if the 3rd Sunday is a holiday/holiday weekend.  Please check the "Meet the Doula" page of our website for details:
