The Doula Network in USA Today - Black doulas offer critical support to moms and babies

The Doula Network was featured in a USA Today article titled ''She made me feel seen and heard.' Black doulas offer critical birth support to moms and babies'. The article highlights the amazing work of many doula and birth justice advocates including Southern Birth Justice Network, G.R.O.W. Doulas, and National Health Law Doula Medicaid Project.

“Sometimes I'm the only other person who looks like my client,” says Brianna Betton, chief operating officer of The Doula Network. “I've been in hospital rooms where I've had to repeat myself multiple times to the provider. Imagine what that would look like for my client if they were alone.” To read the full article, click here
