The Association for Wholistic Maternal and Newborn Health has partnered with Health Net, one of California’s largest Medi-Cal Managed Care Organizations to provide Doula (Professional Childbirth Companion) Support to African-American/Black pregnant women and persons who are planning to deliver in Los Angeles County with a Health Net Medi-Cal Provider. We will serve 150 African-American clients in 2019-2020 with childbirth education, labor ad birth support and breastfeeding and postpartum care. This is a pilot study conducted by Health Net researching the benefits of Doula Support in improving birth outcomes for African-Americans such as reducing cesarean section, premature birth and low birth weight infants. Participants will receive all services for free.
