Expanding Access to Doula Care: Birth Equity and Economic Justice in New Mexico
The Indigenous Women’s Health and Reproductive Justice Program at Tewa Women United is excited to share our report with community!
Expanding Access to Doula Care: Birth Equity and Economic Justice in New Mexico uplifts a community-based doula model, shares statistics about the impacts of doula care from our YVK Doula Project, and offers recommendations to promote birth equity and economic justice in New Mexico and beyond.
As a multicultural, multiracial organization founded and led by Native women in Northern New Mexico, we offer our perspective on Medicaid reimbursement for doula care as well as other opportunities to improve access across our state.
We offer this report as a resource for informed, statewide discussions that center Indigenous doulas, doulas of color, and the communities we care for.
