Our Passion

We are passionate that women have informed access to their birth choices

We believe birth rights are human rights

We believe hospital policies should reflect evidence-based research

We believe women should be the centre of care in hospitals, not insurance companies

We believe our western maternity system needs revision

We believe in collaboration with other doulas and maternity care providers to improve birth outcomes

We believe together we are stronger and we actively build doula communities for support

We believe in building a strong community committed to reducing birth morbidity and trauma

We believe in healing birth and by doing so the world will have less violence and sadness

We view birth as a rite of passage to motherhood

We believe all pregnant women should be supported and nurtured by their community

We believe all women, regardless of culture, background, education, age or financial status should be able  to have access to a well-educated doula

 

Our Vision

We believe advanced education with a grounding in research-based evidence for doulas will result in better doula services and better birthing outcomes.

We aim to increase societal awareness of doulas worldwide.

We aim to see doulas become an important part of every woman’s choice around her childbearing.

We aim to see all doulas become respected birth professionals, by women and multidisciplinary obstetric teams.

Doulas who have been mentored and educated through our programs will become the doulas in demand worldwide. We will be the agency to provide the world with these exceptional doulas.

We aim to work consistently with charitable organisations to assist pregnant and birthing women in crisis worldwide providing them with We Birth qualified doulas.
