THE DOULA NETWORK
WE ARE DOULAS
The Doula Network was established in 2019 with a fundamental belief that every birthing person should have access to affordable, safe, and collaborative perinatal care, and doulas should be considered an indispensable part of the birthing person’s care team.
Our objective is to unite key stakeholders such as doulas, health plan teams, community-based organizations, and Medicaid members to advocate for Medicaid reimbursement. We leverage technology, administrative support, and community resources to ease the burden of the Medicaid billing process. The Doula Network envisions transforming maternal and infant health by providing doula services to every birthing person.
WHAT IS A DOULA?
A doula is a trained non-medical companion who provides support to pregnant people.
- Answer questions about pregnancy, labor, and postpartum.
- Provide physical support to help with comfort during childbirth.
- Offer emotional support to help reduce stress and anxiety during pregnancy and childbirth.
