Welcome to Birthing Gently Doula Services & Professional Education

birthing gently

Birthing Gently was established in 2002 by Tara Campbell / Founder, CD(DONA), BDT(DONA) as a solo practice. Since then Birthing Gently has grown into a multi-doula practice specializing in high risk deliveries. Our original Doula practice was established in Boston, MA and has expanded into Southern NH and NYC. We can be identified at births by our logo on our unique navy blue uniform shirt. Our team at Birthing Gently is committed to providing affordable care to expecting and new families. We provide a nurturing environment for learning during pregnancy and beyond. Our mission is to promote maternal and fetal well-being. We provide an unbiased approach to our expecting families no matter what the plan for birth might be (i.e. Natural, Medicated or Cesarean Section).


Between 2002 - 2011 we provided Birth Doula services to 550 families, Postpartum Doula Services to 210 families, Childbirth education to 7200 families, & Trained over 750 Birth Doulas. We are listed as a doula resource for Brigham & Women's Hospital Boston.


Many of our birth doulas have trained directly under Tara Campbell through our DONA International approved birth Doula Workshops. We offer a group of highly trained & experienced birth doulas, or for a significantly lower rate you can work with one of our trained Birth doulas through our Apprentice Doula program.
