Doula Status of Twin Cities Hospitals during COVID-19 UPDATED 10/5/2022

The policies are ever changing at the moment but this is a snap shot of doula status as of 3/29/22 in Twin Cities area hospitals. *There are times when doulas are allowed in the OR for surgical births at hospitals that do not have it in the written policy, but we felt that consumers and birthing people were best served when they knew what each hospitals official policy stated. If you are a hospital administrator and see an error in our list please contact us at president@childbirthcollective.org. Each hospital name contains a hyperlink to their publicly posted visitor policy.
