Greetings Dear Families,
The wellbeing of the community is our priority. We have been closely following the impact that coronavirus (COVID-19) has had on maternity wards and expecting families. With the rapid escalation of COVID-19, and the heightened level of concern, birthworkers and expecting parents are facing temporary changes to the structure and delivery of doula services.
We are hoping and praying, with everyone else, that things resume to normal, as soon as possible.
Our Frontline Doula Hotline will allow 200 Black pregnant and postpartum individuals throughout California to connect to a community doula on our team for a 50 minute emotional support phone call or text.
Starting August 21st, if you are pregnant or postpartum and want non-emergency support, text ‘doulahelp’ to 31996.
