Our Mission

Our Vision

To help all women have their knowledge and information on how to be in sound mind and body before/after childbirth, and to help them strengthen their bond with family members and the local communities. And to realize a society where mothers live their lives vibrantly, and have a positive impact on following generations.

The logo of Japan Doula Association symbolizes "D for doula", "pregnant women's belly", "the moon" and "smiley face" when making a 90-degree turn. With the color signifying light and connections, the logo was made infusing the future in our vision, and our long-held aspiration.
