We would like to reach 20 families through the end of 2020.
We are a 501c3 and all donations are tax-deductible. Please check to see if your employer will match your donation! All funds received through this drive will go directly to the virtual doula program.
Doula care helps pregnant people to become their own advocate, and covers education & information, emotional support, and guidance for improved physical comfort.
Birthing through this pandemic requires more support, not less. We want to see as many families as possible benefit from the unique support provided by doulas. While we look forward to seeing doulas back at the bedside with families, virtual doula support helps bridge this gap in care.
Doulas are associated with better birth outcomes, including improved satisfaction in care, decreased cesarean rates, decreased birth trauma and mental health complications, and increased breastfeeding rates.
Our program connects low-income families with trained doula support to provide a virtual care package, beginning during their pregnancy and extending through birth into the immediate postpartum period. Families are able to pick a doula through our directory platform who meets their unique needs, emotional, cultural, or otherwise, & can provide insight into their particular situation. We are working to build an inclusive directory of independent doulas so that all families are able to receive representative care aligned with their core values.
THANK YOU FOR HELPING US TO IMPROVE BIRTH BY PARTNERING TOGETHER.
