By providing unique resources for support, choice, connection, and access to information and resources about childbearing, breastfeeding, and parenting, we are providing opportunities for positive family experiences and decision making during childbirth and early childhood for women who often experience cultural and socio-economic barriers to reproductive health and wellbeing. Too many of our women do not have positive role models for how to transition successfully into motherhood, and are learning for the first time about breastfeeding support, healthy baby care, parenting and strategies for coping with the challenges of the post-partum period. Our YVK Doula Project part of our overall effort to heal past traumas and integrate mind, body and spirit to create Beloved Families and Communities. We take very seriously the importance of providing opportunities for women to heal from past trauma, connect with their bodies, and access their own senses of power, for it is in these ways that our family generations and communities will grow stronger.
