I AM IN LABOR AND WANT GALS SUPPORT NOW AND POSTPARTUM

 

If you are in labor and would like support during your birth, you can call our 24/7 dispatch line at 512.934.2171.

If you want to use us when you are in labor, please save our dispatch number, 512.934.2171. When you are ready for us to join you at your birth, give GALS a call. If you have any questions, please contact coordinator@givingaustinlaborsupport.org or info@givingaustinlaborsupport.org.

I AM PREGNANT AND WANT GALS SUPPORT NOW, IN BIRTH & POSTPARTUM

 

If you are pregnant and want to request prenatal and birth support, GALS may be able to match you with a volunteer. This includes: up to two prenatal visits, on-call support for your labor and delivery, and one postpartum follow-up. Learn more here.

We prioritize those who are experiencing homelessness, young/teen mothers, or people receiving services from Any Baby Can, LifeWorks, another service provider.

If you would like prenatal, birth, and postpartum support, but cannot afford a doula and none of the above apply to you, you can still complete the Request Form below. We take income and life circumstance into consideration. Please know that this is a limited program and while we try to serve all families who request support, you may be directed to our On Call Program if we are at capacity. 

If you think you can afford a doula, but don't know where to start, check out Central Texas Doula Association!

If you have any other questions, contact prenatals@givingaustinlaborsupport.org.

If you have already been matched with a GALS doula and are interested/able, you can donate here!
