Young Mothers Doula Program
My experience becoming a mother at the young age of 17 has given me a deep understanding of the needs of under-privileged mothers. Motherhood is an incredible experience but if you are unprepared or uneducated within this realm of life it can turn terrifying quickly. Woman of color, under aged mothers and low income families are at much higher risks for complications in their pregnancies, low quality care and postpartum depression. As as doula, it is my goal to adapt to your particular needs. As an advocate for Black Mama's Matter Alliance, I wanted to give more opportunity to those in need. To stand up for them, protect them, and ensure they were heard. You are loved and you are supported.
The program is designed to give you, the mother, the support that is needed. Regardless of circumstances or walk of life, this program is meant to surround you with protection, support, education and love.
Much like my typical birth service, you will sit down with me at a consultation to discuss your needs and the situation that surrounds you. If under 18, a parent or guardian must attend. We will simply get to know each other. I am here to listen and to understand your story. We will then discuss my services and what the goals of the services are and how to move forward.
Like many outreach programs or services, clients must meet specific qualifications to receive the special discounted pricing for services. As a sole owner of a business I have to protect my business and provide service to those in the greatest need. The application process is simple. If you are under the age of 18 you will need a parent or guardian over the age of 18 to apply for you. If you are between the ages of 18-25 and are in need of support and have little or low income, you are welcome to apply. If you are a woman of color, regardless of age, and in need of support, please apply.
Fees and payments are sliding scale based on monthly income making the services and packages more affordable. There are specially designed services and packages within this program and all will be presented at your consultation.
