S.D. asks from Indianapolis, IN on May 11, 2010
What Should I Call My Doula Business?
I'm trying to decide what I'll name my business. Here are the top contenders:
The Art of Birth (or Art of Birthing, or Birthing Art, or Birth Artistry)
Any opinions? Suggestions?
**The first response made me think of "Better Births"...is that too functional sounding?
***It needs to be something other than my name because I intend on finding a partner or two.
****What do people who have had a doula think?
So What Happened?™
I think I've decided on "Art of Birth: Doula services for a better birth". I'm thinking business cards and stationary can say "Art of Birth" at the top in a large modern font and then underneath in a smaller font it can say "Doula services for a Better Birth".
Thanks for your input!

I would prefer something functional, rather than fancy but that's just me.
If I were to choose a doula, I would probably go with something that sounds serious and professional, like "S. D. Doula Services" or "Labor and Birth Support" rather than "Dancing Bellies", but as I said that is just my personal opinion.

I agree, something more professional. Beautiful Births sounds great. I would not think that Moon Cycle would catch many eyes.

I agree with Nese that a hint of functionality helps...

Moonlight Doulas (if you offer overnight care after birth)

This is a tough one!

I would think you'd want the word "birth" or "doula" in the name. Advertising-wise you want a name that can stand on its own without much explanation.
What a tough decision though! Best of luck to you!

My suggestion: "Better Birthing"
M.W. answers from Cleveland on May 12, 2010
I agree that you need to have the word birth/labor or doula in the name. I have had two home births and other than that first name I would have no clue that you are a doula or do anything with birth. I had a doula at my first three births. With my last I just had my best friend and husband (and midwife). :) I wish I had a postpartum doula for the last one.
Best wishes! Hope you find a great name and have tons of success. :)
