The Swiss Doula Association was founded in 2006. Since then it has grown consistently. Our Association has some unique challenges in that we have members working in four different languages: There are French, German, Italian and Romanish speaking doulas in Switzerland.
In March 2011 at our General Assembly we welcomed around 90 active doulas and some passive members. We enjoy a good relationship with most midwives and today it is only in a few more remote areas of Switzerland where the work of doulas remains unknown.
With our Board actively pursuing public relations, we have had several articles published in Swiss newspapers. In 2011 we produced a short video in Swiss-German about the doula work.
