Doula Project

Every Family Deserves a Blissful Birth

The Doula Project is an endeavor to improve maternal & infant health and birthing experiences for expecting families. Through the project we provide doula services on a sliding scale (or free when funds are available) to families in Hardee, Highlands and Polk Counties and the surrounding area.  We also service families through Healthy Start, RCMA and Choices Pregnancy Care Centers.

We are dedicated to empowering and educating families. Our goal is to help lower the number of unnecessary cesarean births, induced pregnancies and racial disparities in birth outcomes. For growing families, we aim to turn a blissful expectation into a blissful birth. Please email aish@thehealingpot.com for project information or to inquire about private doula services.

What is a Doula?
The word “doula” is an ancient Greek word that is now used to refer to someone experienced in childbirth who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to the expecting family before, during and after childbirth during the postpartum period.

We offer private doula services with reasonable rates and we don’t mind a good barter. Inquire here.
