Yiya Vi Kagingdi (YVK), Community Doula Program:

Tewa Birthing Project Survey Final Report

Through the Yiya Vi Kagingdi (YVK) Community Doula Program, we provide physical, emotional, and informational support during the prenatal, childbirth, and postpartum period in the Espanola area and at the eight northern pueblos of New Mexico. Our doulas spend numerous hours with the families they serve to build strong trusting relationships and to provide pregnancy support, community resources, and childbirth education. We host monthly family nights and offer support through Tewa Women United’s Circle of Grandmothers to allow families a space to share and connect. Yiya Vi Kagingdi doula program encourages parent-baby attachment, breastfeeding support and parenting education. YVK serves the Espanola area and at the eight northern pueblos of New Mexico.
