Jamaa Birth Village is St. Louis's only Non-Profit Midwifery and Doula organization. Want to create change by supporting our programs, services and families? We hope so because we can't do this life changing work without you.
Adopt A Room Campaign Success
Together between May 29th & June 4th, supporters, friends and clients helped us at Jamaa Birth Village reach our campaign goal of adopting all 24-rooms in our new Midwifery Clinic in Ferguson, MO. 309 people came together and raised a total of $39,381 which surpassed our original goal of $32,315, placing our campaign success at 121%! Jamaa's Equal Access Midwifery Clinic will host a virtual grand opening on Juneteenth this year, which falls on June 19th. Save the date!
