Sacred Roots Doula Care provides experienced, certified doulas who offer comprehensive education and training that ensures you have the best experience possible while helping you build a strong foundation for motherhood.

The benefits of having a doula are many. The proper support can make all the difference to a couple going through such a significant life change. A good doula can be an invaluable, objective source of information and guidance and a practical resource. Many couples are unaware of what to expect from a doula or how to find one fit for their needs.

Having a doula during pregnancy can change how you experience every aspect of it. That’s because a doula will give you the personalized support you need during pregnancy. 

Your doula will provide the following:

  • Tailored care to meet the needs of your situation.
  • Support for the many physical and emotional changes associated with pregnancy, childbirth, and early parenthood.
  • Breastfeeding consultations to help you find the best support for nursing your baby

In addition to offering these doula services, Sacred Roots Doula supports community members who may face barriers in accessing health care services in partnership with the Black Parent Initiative. A doula’s role is to be present throughout each member’s entire pregnancy and after the birth. The doula attends early prenatal appointments to establish a relationship with the treating physician when necessary.

In partnership with BPI, they host several events that improve access to prenatal care among African American women who may otherwise not receive it due to race-based discrimination from healthcare providers. They also hold educational opportunities for childcare providers.
