Yula the Doula: Preparation, Support, & Advocacy for Your Birth

Yula Paluy, happily doulaing in SF, Oakland, & Berkeley.

It would be a privilege to help you prepare for the birth of your baby, and to support you during labor so that your experience aligns with your values, and is as healthy and peaceful as possible. I’ve supported clients in hospital, birth center, and home settings. Wherever and however you plan to birth, what matters is that you feel informed, calm, and confident during this transformative time in your life. 

My background is in cognitive and social psychological research. Before becoming a doula, I conducted research at SF State, UC Berkeley, UCSF, and Stanford, where I examined the effects of language and of shared humor on physical and emotional experience. My practice as a doula is informed by all of my training, knowledge, and skills. In addition to completing a birth doula training program, I apprenticed with an experienced doula.I keep up-to-date with best birth support techniques and with research on established and alternative medical practices. My volunteer doula experience includes work with Homeless Prenatal Project and the program at CPMC Mission-Bernal. In addition to working with birth clients, I mentor newer doulas.

I’m fluent in English, עברית, and Русский, and happy to doula you in either of these languages. 

You can learn about my services, fees, testimonials, and more here.

When you get in touch, please include your location, EDD, where you plan to birth (if you know), and anything else you’d like me to know.
