Please Note:  When hiring a doula, it is the consumer's responsibility to check the doula's training, experience and/or certification.  The right to practice as a doula is not restricted by law, the way being a doctor or a midwife is.  Not all doulas are trained or certified but they may still be experienced and offer valuable support.  The Greater Victoria Doula Directory is not a partnership, it acts only as a source of information.  Each doula listed on this site is a sole proprietor.
