We train community doulas who provide caring, one-on-one support to under-resourced pregnant folks 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: raising breastfeeding success rates, reducing medical interventions when they are not necessary, improving the health of birth givers and their babies. It’s cost-effective care that makes a clinical difference.
*Doula [Doo-luh]: a person who is trained to provide informational, physical and emotional support to their clients before, during and after childbirth.

BirthWell Partners’ Mission & Vision:

BirthWell Partners is a non-profit that makes doula training and doula services more equitable and accessible, in order to improve the health of families and communities in Central Alabama.
Our Vision is for every birthing person to feel respected, empowered, and supported through the experiences of pregnancy, birth, and early weeks of parenting.
