• About NAPS

    Since 1996, NAPS has worked to support local postpartum doulas and increase their visibility in the Seattle area.  We are a not-for-profit with a volunteer board of directors.  We are able to offer certification, continuing education, and marketing through the membership dues and fees from our community.   We will never request money from parents for doula referrals.

    Mission Statement:

    NAPS Doulas creates a diverse and inclusive community for postpartum doulas in the Puget Sound Region through continuing education, peer support and professional advocacy. NAPS Doulas supports the postpartum doula profession by maintaining standards and certification, as well as advancing visibility within perinatal and parenting communities.

    Vision Statement:

    NAPS Doula’s vision is for postpartum doulas to feel supported in a strong inclusive community and valued for their professional contributions.
