Philadelphia Alliance for Labor Support
Philadelphia Alliance for Labor Support (PALS) is a group of labor and delivery doulas committed to improving birth experiences and outcomes in the Philadelphia area, as well as promoting the development of new and experienced doulas. They provide trained labor and birth support people (doulas), free of charge, to people who would otherwise be unable to access doula care. They provide subsidized DONA International certified training, twice a year, to those interested in becoming doulas. Their monthly meetings serve as a support network, resource, and forum and are open to anyone interested in empowering and supporting people through the most positive birth experience possible.
