Cincinnati Area Doula Society
Labor, Delivery & Postpartum Support
The Cincinnati Area Doula Society (CADS) is a non-profit network of independent doulas and doula agencies in the greater Cincinnati area. One of the purposes of CADS is to provide a platform to connect various doulas with the families seeking this type of care while they are pregnant or once home with their new baby. CADS is also dedicated to increasing awareness about options and choices available to pregnant and birthing families in the community, as well as provide continuing education for birth professionals.
If you are looking for a doula during pregnancy, labor, or the first year with your baby, you can find many local and reputable professional doulas through the CADS website, or at our bi-monthly Meet the Doulas Events. Local doulas are also welcome to learn more about requirements to join CADS and become an affiliated member doula!
