What is a Doula?
Doula is a trained professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to the mother before, during and shortly after childbirth to help her achieve the healthiest, most satisfying birth experience possible.
Community based-outreach Doula program
Our community outreach doulas are trained to provide evidence-based perinatal education and doula support services to low-income Somali women from second trimesters to baby's first birthday. Women in both of our programs, community-based and the birth doula programs are eligible for free social services, childbirth education classes, and parenting classes as well as kindergarden readiness programs.
