Birth Doula Care

What is a Jamaa Birth Village Doula?

The Jamaa Birth Village Doula Team includes highly trained, skilled childbirth professionals who are experts in culturally-led maternity care. They work together with our midwifery team to provide continuous care through childbirth. Your doula will provide ongoing education, pregnancy and birth plan support, emotional & physical comfort and birth rights advocacy.  Jamaa Doulas are skilled in supporting women and families with difficult family situations and past personal trauma.

How can our doulas improve your pregnancy and birth outcomes?

Jamaa Birth Doulas are committed improving birth outcomes for expecting families. "Studies suggest that increased access to doula care can improve a range of health outcomes for mothers and babies, lower healthcare costs, reduce c-sections (cesarean sections), decrease maternal anxiety and depression, and help improve communication between low-income, racially/ethnically diverse pregnant women and their health care providers." (March of Dimes, 2019)
