Doulas Without Borders is a UK wide network of volunteers offering accessible, grassroots services to women and childbearing people experiencing multiple disadvantage and financial hardship during pregnancy, birth and early parenthood.
Our focus is on providing the emotional, physical and informational support which is crucial during pregnancy, birth and early mother/parenthood.
A calm, supported mother or parent who is able to bond with their baby moves society one step closer to a resilient, connected and well-adapted next generation.
We aim to:
Foster engagement for pregnancy, birth and the postnatal experience.
Support and advocate towards a more informed, dignified and engaged pregnancy, birth and postnatal time
Encourage confidence and attachment in early mothering and parenting
Contribute towards the improvement of quality of life and resilience for future generations who are born into disadvantaged circumstances
Provide safety through continuous, culturally appropriate, language-inclusive presence.
