Meet the Black Infants and Families Doulas

Los Angeles County has launched a Doula pilot project to support Black/African American families in having access to a health and joyous birth. We'd like you to meet them...

Doulas are professional childbirth companions who provide emotional support, physical comfort, education and advocacy to women and persons during pregnancy, childbirth and the newborn period.

For more information on the doula pilot, contact Nakeisha Robinson at NPerkins-Robinson@ph.lacounty.gov or (213) 637-8466.
