Minors

Supporting Teens 17 & under


The BABS team is here to support you as a teen pregnant person. We have the experience, education and skills to prepare you for birth and be there with you when you go into labor and support you through the first few months of postpartum.

To parents - we are here to support you too. We understand that you are taking on two roles - parent and grandparent. Our role is to provide evidence based birth prep education to the pregnant individual, including you in all that we do. When labor starts, we come to your home to support the pregnant teen with breathing and positions. When it's time to go to the hospital, we go along and continue the support we were offering in them home. 


Research completed by Evidence Based Birth shows that having a doula a part of your birth team can:

  • shorten length of labor by 25%
  • reduce use of pain medications by 35%
  • reduce the use of Pitocin by 40%
  • reduce the use of an epidural by 60%
  • reduces the chance of needing a cesarean by 51%

The cost for our services is based upon the past 2-months household income after taxes. 

We work closely with many teen agencies in the Phoenix metro. If you are part of the Arizona Youth Partnership - Starting Out Right Program - our birth doula services will be off no cost to you.
