Who We Are
Choose Your Own Doula
Your Dedicated Doula (YDD) was created because of the want and need of parents to get more involved in the choosing of their postpartum care. YDD knows how important it is to have a strong connection with your Doula at such a vulnerable time in one’s life and therefore our goal is to match you with a doula that fits all your postpartum care needs.
The Goal of YDD
The goal of YDD is to match new parents with the perfect doula for their family structure and budget. The objective of YDD is to take away the overwhelming stress of finding the perfect doula that will help ensure a smooth and seamless transition into your postpartum journey. We do all the work for you!
Boutique Source for Parents
Your Dedicated Doula is a boutique source for parents who can determine their own level of service and budget by specifying in detail the experience, training and personality of their dedicated doula. YDD provides parents with qualified doulas for them to interview to make a final selection.
We Vet All Participating Doulas
As a referral service that allows parents to be part of the process, our clients postpartum needs are analyzed and met by providing parents with options that best fits their needs and budget. Traditional doula services do not give parents a choice of the doula with whom they work with. Once our clients have chosen their perfect doula through YDD, clients and doulas can move forward seamlessly into their new partnership.
YDD completely vets all participating doulas, including background checks, confirmation of vaccination and training certifications. By retaining a doula through YDD, you have the security and peace of mind of knowing that whomever you select, that individual has been completely vetted by a highly experienced team of professional doulas lead by Mary B. Flynn, president of Your Dedicated Doula before you are even introduced.
For New Parents
The goal of Your Dedicated Doula is to match new parents with the perfect doula for their situation and family structure while ensuring a smooth and seamless transition into parenthood.
For Professional Doulas
Professional Doulas who are selected to be part of the Your Dedicated Doula (YDD) Association will receive a source for pre-screened clients, specialized resources and updated training.
Selecting Your Doula
To be part of Your Dedicated Doula, a professional doula must complete an extensive application after which the agency does a thorough background check to assure she is fully vetted.
“Choosing a doula is a huge decision for your family as they are in your home with your newborn every night. I contacted YDD and went through the application process and discovered it was the most seamless process with the least amount of stress. Mary and her team at Your Dedicated Doula are out of this world!”
- Elizabeth J.
“YDD is the ultimate first class service that is available when it comes to having a child. I heard of how much of a nightmare it was to do the research, interview, and choose your own doula. I had a high risk pregnancy and did not want/need the added stress. YDD was the best thing that happened during my pregnancy and the doula I received from them is now like family. Thank you YDD!”
- Madeline G.
"I am so impressed with YDD. I struggled for 6 months trying to locate the “perfect” doula for our first born. When it came time for our second child I had heard of YDD from a friend. We ultimately picked a doula that the experts at YDD thought would be “perfect” for us and she was the absolute perfect fit for our family. All the hard work, research, and background checks were done for us and there was zero stress on me."
- Christina T.
"From the moment she stepped in the door, she exuded a calm and confident demeanor that immediately put me at ease. She is a wealth of knowledge with all things baby, but also with postpartum care, lactation issues and a level of emotional support that isn't from baby experience, but rather a result of her being pretty much one of the best people I know."
- D. Friedman
"…she delivered results! My daughter is a content, well rested, excellent sleeper thanks…"
- S. Nolan

- Natasha D.
"She was a wonderfully calming presence in our home. She made us laugh, made us feel secure and comfortable with all the new experiences we were witnessing."
