GRANT #299:

The Doula Project

For thousands of years, women gave birth without help from doctors because the women helped each other. Women still do this for other women as a labor of love.

Do you know what a “doula” is? Millions of mothers know because a doula was in the delivery room with them, providing emotional, physical, and educational support throughout the entire process.

The Doula Project is a volunteer-run, collectively-led organization of over 50 doulas, who are committed to helping pregnant people regardless of their situation (including tough ones, such as when there will not be a healthy full-term baby).

This Awesome Without Borders grant will help pay for training for new doulas who are interested in doing this sometimes-challenging work. We love that The Doula Project works to make every experience as inclusive as possible so that nobody who needs a doula feels judged.
