Perinatal Safe Spot Spotlight!

Screenshot (381)

The National Perinatal Task Force would like to congratulate the
BirthWell Partners Community Doula Project
for being an outstanding representation of a Perinatal Safe Spot!
BirthWell Partners (BWP) is located in Birmingham, Alabama, servicing Jefferson County, providing free doula services for low-resource families, 92% of whom are covered by Medicaid for their pregnancy and birth. When comparing the birth outcomes & breastfeeding data of Jefferson County Medicaid births and BWP births, there was a significant difference. BWP clients had lower rates of C-section, Epidural, Preterm Births and low birth weights. BWP clients were also over 10 times more likely to breastfeed their babies!
This Perinatal Safe Spot also trains doulas, providing 8-10 need based training scholarships a year, increasing the diversity of doulas
servicing their community.

The aim of the National Perinatal Task Force is that all
Perinatal Safe Spot’s (PSS’s) support a Materno-toxic area. 
How are things going in your community?
