What we do differently at Alimus

Our mission is to support mothers, reduce adverse maternal-fetal outcomes, especially for moms of color, and set mom and baby up for a successful start. We want you to be part of this important shift in our current healthcare system. To reach more women and make doula support affordable and accessible, Alimus works directly with employers and health plans which cover the costs of doula care, eliminating one of the biggest barriers to hiring a doula today. Subsequently, Alimus has a steady inflow of new expecting mothers so that Alimus doulas can focus on caring for and supporting pregnant women instead of focusing on acquiring new clients or paperwork.

Furthermore, we strive to support our Alimus doulas in every way possible: We ensure that you have the right toolkit to be successful, enable you to decide when and how many mothers you want to support during the year, and manage administrative tasks including contracts and administrative questions from mothers and providers.

Frequently asked questions

All our Alimus doulas will undergo a background check. We further require that you have been trained or certified from one of the Alimus approved doula organizations and have supported at least 20 births since becoming a doula. If you don’t meet these entry requirements yet, we can help set you up with the appropriate training and volunteer program so that you can qualify to become an Alimus doula.

If you are passionate about supporting mothers and improving birth outcomes, we will help match you with the right program so you can meet all of Alimus requirements. Alimus can help pay for the training program up-front and will deduct expenses from your payments over the course of your first five births.

Yes, you may choose to not support mothers during specific times of the year (e.g., summer break or planned vacation times).

Our Alimus doulas are all contractors.

Alimus will pay part of your fee when you are matched with a mother and the remainder when you have completed your postpartum check in with mom.

To prevent conflicting births and allow enough time to engage with your moms-to-be, we ask that Alimus doula cover a maximum of 6 births/month.
