Doulas Offer Special Care for a Special Time

In-person help in your home 

Having a baby can be stressful! That’s why all our MassHealth plans offer a doula program that gives you extra help when you are pregnant. 

How it works

A doula is trained to give you non-medical support.* The doula can visit your home and: 

  • Help you and your family prepare for the birth of a new baby
  • Teach you what to expect during your pregnancy, labor and delivery
  • Coach you about breastfeeding 
  • Help you schedule and get ready for prenatal visits 
  • Teach you how to take care of your newborn, and more! 

*A doula does not take the place of your provider.
