The Doula Association of Ireland

The Doula Association of Ireland covers most areas in Ireland and 95% of their members were trained by Doula Ireland and are DONA Trained. 

The Doula Association of Ireland is a community of mothers and doulas that promotes, develops and supports doulas and the doula profession.  They are a voluntary, not for profit membership organisation that is bound by a common code of ethics, constitution and disciplinary procedure.

The aim of the doula is to provide gentle and caring support, information and companionship to birthing mothers and their families during the pregnancy, labour, birthing and postpartum processes. Some doulas specialise in providing assistance during pregnancy and birth, others work in the postpartum period to assist new mothers, and some do a combination of both. Whatever your circumstances or birth wishes, your doula is with you every step of the way providing continuous support and encouragement, assisting you to have the very best birth possible.

Whether you are interested in hiring a doula, becoming a doula yourself or simply would like to find out more information, we trust you will find the answers to some of your questions in their website -
