IDoula Bag Client Servicesn this seventh edition of the Doula Business Chat (#doulabizchat) we discuss client services.  Many doulas offer services that are complementary to their doula services.  We discuss the different services that doulas are currently being offered, brainstorm on other possible complementary services and discuss how and why we would want to add to our current practice. 

 

Advantages of adding additional services
  • Provide quality services to our clients
  • Increase the earning potential of each client interaction

Most Common Complementary Services Offered

  • Childbirth Education
  • Lactation Consulting
  • Placenta Encapsulation (this one is the most talked about right now!)

 

One of the doulas on video with me, Erin, brought up a great question. How does offering additional services have an impact on our Doula Code of Ethics? This is an excellent question!  Each of us must evaluate this process and make sure that we are working within our scope.  One thought that came from the chat box, was to create separate contracts for each of the services we offer.  I also think that we need to make sure that our clients are aware of our training and certifications for all services that we offer.

    Can you please discuss some aspects and topics of doula businesses that are specific to postpartum doulas? There’s so much out there for birth doulas but not much for postpartum doulas.

    We always love to connect with doulas! Family Paws Parent educators really want to network with other professionals that support families. Thank you for the mention!
