Our Vision

Journey Birth and Wellness exists to train and equip birth professionals from diverse backgrounds to come alongside women from their own culture to offer education, support, and community so that they can be empowered during their pregnancy, labor, and into motherhood. We seek to fulfill this vision in the following ways:

  • Training classes for birth professionals so they can best support women from unique situations
  • Offer Doula services to women highest at risk for maternal and infant mortality in our local neighborhoods
  • Build relationships with hospitals and local resources so that we can best serve each woman and their specific needs
  • Serve the refugee population while expanding services as our organization grows

What Is a Doula?

According to DONA International, a Doula is defined as,

"A trained professional who provides continuous physical, emotional, and informational support to a mother before, during, and shortly after childbirth to help her achieve the healthiest, most satisfying experience possible."

We currently offer Doula services to refugee women that need support from outside their communities. We meet with them for prenatal visits, offer full support while in labor, and continue to meet with them during the postpartum period. We offer education so they are empowered to make informed decisions about their care and the care of their newborn. We help support and build community so that no woman feels alone during this precious time in their life.
