Get Birth Support

Why Doula Support in the DMV

DC has nearly 2x the national maternal mortality rate.

And 90% of pregnancy-related deaths in DC are among Black birthing people.

4 out of 5 pregnancy-related deaths are preventable.

Prenatal care and education are critical for a healthy mom and healthy baby. But too often, this care is  inaccessible or prohibitively expensive.

In the DMV, doula care can cost between $1,500-$3,000, making this service out of reach for too many.

We’re working to change that. Our volunteer doulas provide care at $0 to the birthing person.
