Support families,  support equity, support birth.

AZ maternal and infant death rate has increased 43% since 2017. Having a doula present for prenatal support and in the hospital improves infant & maternal outcomes.
Having life-saving care should not be a luxury.

Our focus as an organization is on improving birth outcomes for all pregnant people in Southern Arizona, especially those experiencing social or economic hardship. We offer doula support, education, and guidance through pregnancy, birth, and into the postpartum period. 

Randomized studies show that having doula support:
