Why are Doulas Important?
The purpose of our work, first and foremost, is to strengthen the family unit for those most at risk and provide the tools necessary for children to have the best start in life possible. We provide training and support on prenatal nutrition, childbirth education classes, breastfeeding, safe sleeping habits, car seat safety and stress reduction techniques, all of which are critical for a new mother and her child to thrive. Another critical component of our organization is the education and training we will provide to staff at the crisis shelters we are partnering with so that they can provide advanced labor support during childbirth when funding does not allow us to directly support the expectant mother. This is the first of it’s kind in northeast Wisconsin. It will provide support as an expansion of programming within already established non-profits that serve expectant mothers who are at risk to create better outcomes for families.
