Doulas of Douglas County to host a series of events and activities during Black Maternal Health Week 2024 with support from Douglas County Community Foundation.

Founded by BMMA, Black Maternal Health Week is a week of awareness, activism, and community-building aimed at amplifying the voices of Black Mamas and centering the values and traditions of the reproductive and birth justice movements. BMHW is held annually in April during National Minority Health Month.

Doulas of Douglas County is thrilled to share that our project, dedicated to Black Maternal Health Week, has secured funding from the Douglas County Community Foundation. Our doulas have organized a series of social gatherings, educational workshops, and networking events tailored to Black mothers, families, service providers, and community supporters. By uniting and amplifying the voices and experiences of Black mothers, we can strive towards building a more just and compassionate society. We aspire to offer a secure environment for sharing, learning, and development. 

Traci Dotson, the Doula Program Manager, expressed appreciation, saying, “Receiving this grant is a genuine honor, especially among the many deserving causes that likely applied. We are grateful to the Douglas County Community Foundation for supporting our endeavors in advocating for birth justice and recognizing Black Maternal Health Week.”

Together, we can truly impact the lives of Black families in Douglas County and beyond. Join us on this journey of advocating for Black maternal health and celebrating the strength and resilience of Black mothers.
