What is the Best Way to Find your Doula??

Why Doula Speed Dating of course!

The Nesting Place has partnered with Urban Chiropractic to offer Toronto’s only Doula Speed Dating! The intention of the event is to make finding a doula easier for parents. Before there was such thing as Doula Speed Dating, parents spent hours wading through websites trying to get a sense of doulas, phoned all of them to schedule interviews that took place over the course of a few weeks and spent an average of an hour in each doula interview. By this schedule, it would sometimes take weeks or months to find the doula to works well for you.

At Doula Speed Dating, parents spend 5 min with 10 doulas, all in one night! Five minutes is certainly not enough time to ask all of your questions, but it is enough time to see if you feel a connection with a person. After Doula Speed Dating parents can book follow up interviews with the doulas they felt comfortable with and significantly narrow down the amount of time they spend looking for a doula.

Recently CBC Radio caught wind of our event and featured us on their show Metro Morning. For those of you who missed it, you can listen to it on their website:

We also peaked the interest of The Globe and Mail who included us in their feature story on “Speed Hiring.” View their article on here:

Dr. Ann Frost studies organizational behaviour at the Richard Ivey School of Business. She supports that Doula Speed Dating is an effective way to find a good doula match!

We’re very excited to see that Doula Speed Dating is becoming an essential resource that parents are enjoying and benefiting from. Because of this, we are motivated to offer this event regularly and will be holding Doula Speed Dating at Urban Chiropractic every three months.

This event is FREE for parents but registration is required. Please email me at amanda@thenestingplace.ca with your name(s), phone number and email to register.
