Community Doula Services

Community doulas are a vital advocate during pregnancy who can help ensure a healthy pregnancy and support new parents during the postpartum phase.  

The Community of Caring empowers communities and new parents by working with community partners to implement community doula training and free doula services in Paterson and the Greater Newark areas. This program expands access to doula care and provides free community doula training following the HealthConnect One program, which is recognized by the State of New Jersey.

  • Doulas are trained to give emotional, physical, and informational care during pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period.
  • Doulas are members of your community who can be trusted to advocate for your needs.
  • Doulas are respected members of the pregnancy care team, providing advocacy and support to parents.
  • Doulas help improve birth outcomes and breastfeeding rates, setting up your family for success.
