Welcome to Metro Doula Group!

What started as a tiny seed idea for a support group for local NYC area doulas in 1999 has grown to become one of the longest sustained, collaborative doula networks in the country.

MDG has been a doula presence in NYC since its start, and we are now over 1000 strong, working together to build and expand doula awareness, equality, compassion and sustainability. Our branches reach beyond NYC and out into the surrounding metro area.

Whether you’re a new doula, thinking about becoming a doula, a wise and experienced doula, a doula who’s just moved here, a doula who goes to 50 births a year, a doula who goes to 5 a year, as always, no matter where or with whom you trained or studied … welcome! We’re glad you’re here.
