BirthWell Partners Community Doula Project

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