To improve the prenatal, birth, and postpartum experiences for low-income women and teens by providing comprehensive, compassionate, and evidence-based doula services.
How We Support You
We believe that everyone deserves access to a doula, even if they cannot afford one. We provide prenatal, birth and postpartum doula services to low-income families in need in Southeast Michigan. Our wonderful volunteers are the heart and soul of the Doula Project. Each of our skilled and caring doulas provides a minimum of one prenatal visit, attendance at the birth, and one postpartum visit .
SMDP Covid-19 Update
The Southeast Michigan Doula Project is dedicated to ensuring the health and safety of its clients and volunteer doulas. We recognize that the Covid-19 virus presents unique challenges and are committed to continuing to provide evidence-based care for our clients while navigating the current public health landscape.
Beginning March 23, SMDP will continue to offer prenatal and postpartum support via video, phone, or text/email. We will not be offering physical labor support due to heightened restrictions and health and safety concerns. This change in policy will remain in effect for all births with an estimated delivery date before July 1, 2020.
We expect to resume matching for physical labor support in June for those clients with estimated delivery dates after July 1, 2020. However, our primary concern is ensuring the health of our clients and doulas. We will stay abreast of the evolving situation with COVID-19 to make sure we do not resume full services until it is safe for everyone involved.
