Community Doula project
What is a Doula and WHat do they do?
A Doula (Doo-luh) is a person who is trained to provide informational, physical and emotional support to their clients before, during and after childbirth.
Doulas help families find the information they need to make informed decisions, support clients physically and emotionally during labor and birth, and assist them with breastfeeding and early bonding. Doulas help people meet their pregnancy, labor and postpartum goals.
BirthWell Partners is a non-profit that facilitates doula trainings and provides doula services at free or reduced cost in order to make doula care equitable and accessible, thereby improving the health of families in our Central Alabama communities.
Our vision is for every birthing person to feel respected, empowered, and supported through the experiences of pregnancy, labor, birth, and the early weeks of parenting.
