Learn About...

Doulas Without Borders is a UK wide network of volunteers offering accessible, grassroots services to women and childbearing people experiencing multiple disadvantage and financial hardship during pregnancy, birth and early parenthood.

 

Our focus is on providing the emotional, physical and informational support which is crucial during pregnancy, birth and early mother/parenthood.

A calm, supported mother or parent who is able to bond with their baby moves society one step closer to a resilient, connected and well-adapted next generation.

We provide accessible pregnancy, birth and postnatal support for people in financial hardship who are, for example:

  • Survivors and victims of domestic/sexual violence

  • Experiencing displacement and people seeking refuge/asylum

  • Experiencing homelessness

  • Experiencing/expecting to experience pregnancy or infant loss 

  • Aged under 20, without adequate support

  • Survivors and victims of trafficking and modern-day slavery

​​

We accept referrals on a case-by-case basis, so please contact us if you think someone needs support but doesn't meet any of the above criteria.​
