Legacy’s Doula program for Medicaid patients giving birth at Randall Children’s Hospital Family Birth Center


For professional doulas

Verified Doula Badge for community doulas & 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).


How to get a Verified Doula badge:

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.

  • PDF of completed doula training from an established and approved doula program
  • Traditional Health Worker Registry approval- THW link or approval letter acceptable
  • PDF of doula certification
  • Link to bio on your professional doula website
  • Link to DoulaMatch profile
  • Other proof of doula training and/or professional work (outside of U.S) 
    o Must list professional doula trainer contact
  • Community Birth Midwives as Doulas (transport):
    o Provide CNM, CPM, LDM, DE, Naturopathic/Family Practice, or Traditional certification verification 
    o Provide OMC contact/membership status for referral as needed

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= No entry unless you are the one designated visitor. Your badge gives you access to all six Legacy medical centers.
