Welcome to Metro Doula Group (MDG)!

What started as a 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. Our branches now reach beyond NYC and out into the surrounding metro area and we host over 1,200 New York birth and postpartum doulas!

Whether you’re a new doula, thinking about becoming a doula or a wise and experienced doula, welcome! We’re glad you’re here.

If you are an expecting metro area family looking to learn about our doulas, you’re in the right place too.
