DAVIS – Sutter Davis Hospital will be accepting online applications for the hospital’s Volunteer Doula Program beginning Tuesday, August 15. The applications will be open until September 5.

Doulas provide continuous physical, emotional and informational support to mothers during the childbirth process. The Sutter Davis Hospital Volunteer Doula Program is administered by Birthing Center nurses with many years of experience supporting women in labor.
