Annapolis Area Doulas is Owned and Operated by Carly Glover.  
As a busy mom of 5 boys running a support group for local parents, her passion for birth and interest in assisting families in her community sparked a business venture and a passion that drives the entire agency.  Starting as a partnership under the name Destined Doulas, her high level of professionalism and busy client schedule birthed an agency model of amazing local doulas.

Known around the Annapolis area for their expert care, hospitals, OB’s and midwives constantly refer birthing families to Annapolis Area Doulas.  Carly’s goal is to foster a gentle yet strong network of support for every birthing family in the Annapolis Area.  Through this process she has hand picked and mentored the highest quality of doulas to add to the agency and prides herself on matching each client with the perfect doula for their birth.   It takes a village to raise a child, and a village as well to support a family along their journey through parenthood!  Our founder is proud and honored to stand by your side as your premier doula agency.
