About us

The Hospital Birth Doula Program concept was launched by Discover Birth in 2010. Through a collaboration with The Scarborough Hospital in the Greater Toronto Area, a team of 30 doulas came together to launch the first program of its kind in Ontario: a 24/7, 365 day-a-year non-volunteer-based birth doula program. The program is self-funding and sponsored in part by Discover Birth Inc.

How Does the Program Work?
Any woman who is expecting to deliver at The Scarborough Hospital (General or Birchmount locations) is eligible for enrolment in our program. Fees range from $100 to $500 depending on your household income.
