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.



BirthWell Partners’ Mission:

BirthWell Partners is a not-for-profit community doula project whose mission is to improve the health of low-resource families and their infants in Central Alabama  by offering free and reduced-cost childbirth education, breastfeeding assistance, and non-medical labor support provided by birth doulas.*
*Doula [Doo-luh]: a woman who is trained to provide informational, physical and emotional support to women before, during and after childbirth.
