GfG-Doula® – Association
GfG-Doula® is the abbreviation for Gesellschaft für Geburtsvorbereitung – Familienbildung und Fraugesundheit- e.V., an organisation founded in 1980, and offering doula support since 2005.
While there are several hundred members of the GfG overall, approximately 25 are operating today as doulas. Together they have assisted in the birth of many babies, with most of these taking place in hospitals, others at home and in other birthing institutions.
The Association reports that their doulas are generally involved in pregnancy and birth support, with less call for services post-partum and for breastfeeding.
