We train community doulas who provide caring, one-on-one support to low-resource pregnant women and teens in central Alabama. Doulas provide women with the information they need to make informed decisions, support them physically and emotionally during labor, and assist them with breastfeeding and early bonding. It’s cost-effective care that makes a clinical difference.
