One of the most asked questions we get at DTI is how to start out and maintain a thriving client base. Becoming a doula and getting out there to support folks through reproductive health transitions is big work. The calling to serve families in this way can only be achieved if you are able to reach them. And for some of us that feels hard on our own.
Today, we want to introduce you to a tool that can help find new doula clients. By allowing you to proactively reach out to parents near you and putting your profile in front of thousands of parents every month, Meela is supporting doulas in building successful and sustainable businesses, and helping parents in need of doula support access care.
