About PALS Doulas

PALS was established in 1988 in Seattle, by local, caring committed members of the doula community, looking to create a membership organization for local doulas.

PALS is the oldest doula organization in existence and eventually gave birth to the organization that became DONA International.

PALS is an all-volunteer organization. Our volunteers are committed to the advancement of the doula profession and use their skills to create a better community for our local doulas.

PALS Doulas has been a trusted organization in the Puget Sound region for nearly three decades. The mission of PALS is advancing the doula profession. Our all-volunteer organization works tirelessly to provide socialization and continuing education opportunities for our members, and to provide a relevant and comprehensive certification process.
