Detailed Information

Momma’s Village-Fayetteville is a nonprofit organization with a mission to provide access to African-centered birth & breastfeeding support, postpartum care, parenting education and mental health resources for Black families in Fayetteville/Ft. Bragg and the surrounding Sandhills region. Our focus is to provide quality care, services and resources to reduce Black maternal & infant morbidity and mortality through our village of full-spectrum health professionals, peer supporters and elders from our community. In March, 2018, the FIRST Black doula training was held and 12 Black doulas were trained. Momma’s Village Fayetteville has chosen to operate as a doula collective and NOT a doula agency because we wanted to make sure we were accessible to ALL women while honoring the principles of the African village concept. Often times, many doula agencies seem to be exclusive in their language, where they choose to offer their services, and how they market themselves. Our MVF Doula Sisters make sure that we follow the motto that Every Woman Deserves a Doula if it is desired. We have a total of five (5) active, trained doulas directly affiliated with MVF who provide pregnancy, birth and postpartum support, placenta encapsulation, lactation support, mental health support and a host of other services that honor our families during this special, sacred time. Our other trained doulas operate as independent doulas to increase access to Black doulas in our area. We look forward to the work that we will do in our community Perinatal Safe Spot, as we educate, promote, protect, and support our families so that we can help improve birth and health outcomes. We hope that through our service and dedication, we make a lasting impact that will benefit generations to come because it takes a village to impact a community.
