  • Instruct and facilitate prenatal classes that cover a wide range of topics including childbirth preparation, lactation, and newborn care.
  • Host regular community gatherings for our patients and local families
  • Collaborate with other team members (e.g., midwives, obstetricians, nurses, doulas, nutritionists, therapists, etc.) to contribute to our interdisciplinary approach to caring for patients.
  • Stay up-to-date with the latest research, trends, and practices in childbirth and maternal care to offer accurate and evidence-based information to expecting parents as they prepare for their birth, newborn feeding journey and postpartum experience.

About you

We are looking for a compassionate and driven doula who has:

  • 5+ years of experience working with families throughout their pregnancy, birth, and postpartum in a counseling, educational, and hands-on supportive doula role. Required to have experience in prenatal educational sessions with their clients, >50 hospital births attended and home postpartum care.
  • Extensive experience working directly with clinical care providers, including CNMs, RNs and OBGYNs.
  • Commitment to health equity, racial justice work, reproductive justice and supporting principles of bodily autonomy, self-determination, and cultural respect.

About Millie

Millie is reimagining the hospital-based midwifery model. We aim to provide more complete, inclusive, and empowering care with better maternal health outcomes by centering midwifery and doula care with OBGYN collaboration as a standard in the U.S.

Our Berkeley, CA in-person clinic provides a warm and welcoming environment for holistic perinatal care. At Millie, support extends beyond the clinic through app-based education, remote monitoring, and virtual care spanning specialties. We partner with Alta Bates Hospital for our labor and delivery services — and all services are covered by major insurance plans and Medi-Cal. Our patient population is very diverse and we hope to build a clinical team that reflects the patients we serve.

At Millie, we are committed to health equity and culturally competent care — as well as prioritizing, affirming, and celebrating diversity within our team, clinicians, and patients. We strongly encourage BIPOC and LGBTQ+ individuals, veterans, and people with disabilities to apply.

Our clinic and care team are successful when all birthing parents, regardless of background:

1. Feel valued, respected, and heard.

2. Feel confident and supported in their decisions.

3. Can easily access trusted and skilled support.

4. Experience a healthier pregnancy, birth, and postpartum journey.

This includes (but is not limited to) reduced rates of preterm births, NICU stays, C-sections, earlier detection of complications, and a better experience.
