NNJDoulaNet is an advocacy and resource organization for doulas in Northern NJ. We support collaborative work with doctors and midwives. We seek creative partnerships with maternal-child health organizations.
NNJ DoulaNet is not aligned with one particular organization - we are here in support of the work of all doulas.
Our efforts include doula events, advocacy, and education/professional development, and highlighting birthworkers making a difference.
Every month we celebrate one of our local birthworkers. Allow us to introduce you.
AdvocacY & EDUCATION
One of our representatives can come to your organization to teach about the role of the doula.
