THE KCMO DOULA INITIATIVE

The KCMO Doula Initiative will provide direct doula service to Kansas City residents allowing them to choose from a network of doulas, including doulas at Uzazi Village. These trained professionals will offer emotional, physical, and informational support to pregnant individuals, helping them navigate the challenges of pregnancy and childbirth. Doulas are known to reduce the risk of complications, enhance birth experiences, and improve the overall well-being of both mothers and babies. Are you an experienced Doula interested in serving pregnant families? Contact us.
