AS A MAINE DOULAS APPLICANT, YOU ARE:

  • professional; whether you are coming from the corporate world, or graduate school, or a trip around the world, you are focused and authentic

  • compassionate; you may have given birth yourself or not, yet you are intuitive and sensitive to the human experience

  • self-motivated; you want to earn a living doing what you love, and are always striving to grow and learn

  • capable of providing non-judgmental support to all families. Maine Doulas fully support parents through any experience, regardless of birth or parenting choices. Individuals who consider themselves activists and saviors need not apply. 

  • available to fully commit to supporting families. While our model allows for flexibility in scheduling, on-call availability is essential in any doula career.

  • a team player, maintaining a respectful dynamic between fellow doulas, clients and their families, and all medical professionals. 

  • willing to commit to the Maine Doulas team. From Kittery to Mid-coast to Bridgton to Mount Desert, we are looking for doulas near and far! 

  • A completed training is not required at the time of application but must be completed before an offer is extended. For an offer to be extended you must be trained or be willing to train, and work toward certification. Training in both birth and postpartum is not required, but appreciated.
