Your confidant. The person who provides unconditional care through shared experience and complete understanding. The connection is unparalleled because it is based upon trust, empathy and commitment.

With your Battle Buddy by your side you feel stronger, more empowered and fully accepted. The relationship comes without bias or judgment.

Operation Special Delivery doulas are your Battle Buddy. While birth is by no means a battle, the relationship with your Battle Buddy creates an amazing space for birth.

Birthing women thrive when they feel strong, empowered and accepted. OSD is excited at the opportunity to match you with your Battle Buddy!

Adorable sleepy newborn baby with a toy bunny yawning in bedOSD started as a network of volunteers providing doula services to the partners of deployed military personnel. Today it has expanded into a national organization whose goal is to provide professional and sustainable doula services to military personnel, past and present. While the heart of the program has stayed the same, it had become increasingly evident that accountability and better systems were needed to allow the program to thrive. Operation Special Delivery has undergone a complete overhaul for your benefit. You can confidently engage with OSD for labor support, knowing that professionalism, respect, committment and accountability await your every need.
