World Doula Week

WDW photosEvery woman deserves access to the support she needs as she brings a baby into the world.

However this is not the reality for many women in our community.

Women from refugee and asylum seeker backgrounds, young women, women experiencing homelessness, women with issues related to mental (ill)health, substance misuse and with a history of trauma and abuse – continue to face barriers in seeking the support they need during this critical time, leaving them at high risk of poor maternal and infant health outcomes.

At Birth for HumanKIND, we want to change that. 

The only program of its kind in Victoria – we give women experiencing financial hardship and social disadvantage access to free pregnancy, birth and early parenting support through our doula support program.

Over the past few months, demand has completely overwhelmed our current capacity and we need to recruit and train more volunteer doulas.

We need your help to raise $12,000 in 12 days. 

Donate now to our World Doula Week campaign (March 20-31) and be part of our work building happier, healthier families, communities and future generations.

12K in 12 Days

 

And keep your eyes peeled on our Facebook, Instagram and Medium accounts throughout the campaign as we bring you 12 unique and heartwarming stories so you can see for yourself the impact that our program is having on the lives of women in Victoria.
