We were recently asked who is We Birth? And we honestly answered it is all of us. You, her, us. All of us who work in this space alongside women and families. We are committed to working in collaboration, thinking about the bigger picture. After all, we are stronger together. Fortunately, this We Birth community is made of such a variety of doulas and birth workers, from the least to the most experienced, over different countries, with different skills and passions.
We sincerely believe that doulas and birth workers are in such a powerful position to assist women, babies and families to experience birth and early family life in the best possible way, whatever that means for them as an individual.
We want to support you, as you support them.
