Growing healthier families by providing friendship, education, and support during pregnancy and beyond!
We are a community-based volunteer organization started in Sacramento, California, now thriving in Tupelo, Mississippi. Through our community-based doula and breastfeeding peer counselor programs, women and their partners receive personalized education in childbirth prep, breastfeeding, money management, infant health, and parenting on a budget. We provide our mothers with insightful guidance and evidence-based information in a timely manner. Our mothers benefit from mother-blessings, community baby showers, and seasonal events.
Our director, Toni Hill, received the 2010 Birthing Project USA Harriett Tubman Trailblazer of the Year award.
In November 2013, Toni Hill was awarded the 5 Hour Energy Helps award–check out the video here!
