Register for a verified doula badge
For professional community doulas and midwives
Legacy supports professional doulas as part of the Legacy Care Team on all our Family Birth Center units. Professional doulas are not considered visitors. These doulas will wear a purple badge titled “Verified Doula." This badge means the doula has met the criteria to receive a badge and can support their clients at any Legacy facility as a part of our care team. These badges only allow the doula access to care for their clients during labor and one-hour postpartum. Legacy’s one support person only policy is still in place for a planned or unplanned cesarean birth (no doulas in the OR unless they are the one support person chosen).
For Professional Doulas only, please provide at least one or more of the following to demonstrate professional doula/midwife verification. The more points of verification you can provide, the faster we can expedite approval for access to Legacy’s Family Birth Center(s). Once you have registered, a staff member will email you with next steps.

Please note: once you are approved, you will need to go to a Legacy Security Office to receive a badge in-person.
You must always wear your badge upon entry and while at Legacy to not be counted as a visitor. No badge = you can only enter as a designated visitor. Your badge gives you access as a doula to all six Legacy medical centers but does not confer any other Legacy affiliation or privileges.
Legacy Health Systems is hiring a diverse and skilled group of doulas to provide prenatal, intrapartum and postpartum doula care to pregnant patients on Medicaid through Legacy locations in Oregon.
Our program was created by doulas, for doulas, with a commitment to the fidelity of the doula role and model of community-based doula care. Our program is not shift-based but client-centered. We prioritize community-based doulas who can provide culturally and linguistically congruent care or relevant lived experience for birthing families within their communities.
Doulas should be on the THW Registry as a Medicaid-approved doula prior to applying. View more information and resources on applying as a doula to the THW Registry.
Applicants will also need to have current BLS CPR, are required to carry liability insurance and will need to be brought up to date with vaccinations and be screened for TB through Employee Health.
