Join Us On Our Current Projects

Doulas in Every County

We are working to locate and train at least 2 doulas in all 95 TN counties.

Hospital Only Labor Support

Take a shift and support a client for 6 hours of labor,

My Baby 4 Me

Free class and a hot meal for pregnant moms twice a week in Nashville and Memphis. Volunteer as a doula to be helping hands during class.

Community Doula Project

The best doulas to serve a mom are the ones next door. We strive to find and train community women who know how best to serve their area.

Perpetual Doula Education Fund

We want to make doula training affordable to everyone, so we created a fund that will pay for your doula training and you can pay the fund back within a year to help another doula train.

Diversify The Doula Culture Grant

To better serve the TN population, we need to train doulas from all cultures. Currently we have trained 8 Spanish speaking doulas and 6 Arabic speaking doulas. 

Doula Pilot Grant for the State

We are currently running a pilot program to provide doula services to moms on TennCare.

Movement In Labor Research

Studies show that moms who move during 50% of their labor time decrease their c-section rate by 50%. We are conducting a study to see if that is true for moms who are at high risk.
