Detailed Information

The Birthing Place is a team of experienced BIPOC doulas and birthing professionals, serving families in search of a safe, serene, and deeply supportive alternative to birthing low-risk pregnancies in hospitals. In collaboration with community partners and wellness providers, we are launching The WOMB BUS, a mobile health and wellness hub, to provide education and outreach to Bronx residents. Program activity of WOMB BUS is equipped to begin in May 2022, providing perinatal education, reproductive & nutrition counseling, mental health support, and increased access to supplementary bodywork modalities (such as chiropractic care and acupuncture) to historically underserved neighborhoods. Our approach in providing individualized care reduces maternal and infant stress, promotes healthier pregnancies, and provides familial support beyond what is traditionally available in hospitals. Our ultimate goal is to create a birth center – a sanctuary that offers personalized, loving support for the planning, expectant, and newly blossomed family. Core Values We see birth as a transformative time. We provide the highest quality of care. We are client and community centered. We cultivate a collaborative environment. We are a village that respects and uplifts one another. We believe in Birth and Reproductive Justice.
