meet the team


East Raleigh Doula Co. was created by two birth-loving doulas & friends , Emily Kelly & Courtney Little. After running our own businesses for a couple years, trying to care for our clients in the ever-changing world of a global pandemic, we decided to join forces and provide better, more comprehensive and more personalized support for our clients. This launched East Raleigh Doula Co. in December 2020. Between the two of us, we have supported over 130 moms in the Raleigh Area.  Now, as we continue to serve mothers in the Raleigh area, we are growing and have brought on more doulas to join in our vision to empower women to confidently make choices in their pregnancy, birth and postpartum journey by providing evidence-based education, labor and postpartum support. 


As our team grows we are able to provide even more birth services, childbirth education services, postpartum services and placenta encapsulation. The beauty of East Raleigh Doula Co.  is that when a client hires us, they receive the benefit of our entire team of doulas, with multiple educational backgrounds and experiences. This allows the birth client to know both the primary and backup doula  thats assigned to their birth which helps our clients feel more comfortable and more likely to experience a better birth and postpartum experience.

how did we get here?

our philosophy

We believe that every mother deserves an amazing support system during her birth.  It is our goal to help our clients be educated, informed and feel in control of their individual birth plan and birthing process.  ​

We also believe it is important for the birth partner to play an active role during the labor and birth.  We will work with each mother and her partner to best support her individualized birth plan. 

We believe that a mother should be supported no matter where she chooses to birth her child or what route she chooses for pain relief. 

We believe that a mother should be supported after their baby is born and have the time to rest, heal and bond with her baby however she feels works best for her family.
