Our Mission

By doulas, for doulas

The NCDA is built for doulas by doulas. We understand that doulas play a significant role in supporting families throughout the reproductive journey – our care is especially impactful for families who are systemically marginalized. However, doulas are at the risk of facing burnout when there are no support systems available to ensure us being sustained in this work.

Our mission is to address the challenges Doulas face in providing services and the barriers their clients encounter in accessing care. We practice the principles of trust-based funding that enables Doulas to sustain their work, and we center Doulas and families from socio-economic communities that experience systemic oppression and marginalization.
