Our Community Doula Program aims to bridge the evident gap between access to doula services and essential childbirth education for black families. By tackling issues rooted in medical racism and the lack of adequate healthcare access, we're determined to make a lasting impact.
At Me & She Doulas, we deeply recognize the unique challenges faced by black mothers. With troubling statistics highlighting their heightened risks during childbirth, our mission becomes even more profound: to empower every black mother and family towards a safer, educated, and more fulfilling birth experience and parenting transition.
