Every black women deserve a doula
In the U.S., the CDC reported that black women experience maternal mortality at a rate two to three times higher than that of white women. The estimated national maternal mortality rate in the United States is about 17 per 100,000 live births–but is about 43 per 100,000 live births for black women.
What is a doula?
A doula is a professional trained in childbirth who provides emotional, physical, and educational support to a mother who is expecting, is experiencing labor, or has recently given birth. Their purpose is to help women have a safe, memorable, and empowering birthing experience.
