Supporting childbearing women in vulnerability and financial hardship
Doulas Without Borders is a UK-wide voluntary network, offering accessible grass roots services to women experiencing multiple disadvantage and financial hardship during pregnancy, birth and early motherhood. We currently have over 200 volunteers.
Our focus is on providing emotional, physical and informational support which is crucial during pregnancy, birth and early motherhood.
We provide accessible pregnancy, birth and postnatal support for those in financial hardship who are: survivors of domestic / sexual violence, new refugees / asylum seekers, experiencing homelessness, experiencing baby loss, aged under 20 and without adequate support and survivors of human slavery / trafficking.
A calm, supported mother who is able to bond with her baby, moves society one step closer to a resilient, connected and well-adapted next generation.
