The New Mexico Doula Association
The New Mexico Doula Association is an inclusive, birth-justice focused organization that works to make doula care more accessible throughout the state of New Mexico through advocacy and education. We believe that all New Mexican families have the right to affordable, non-judgmental, and culturally-competent support in pregnancy, birth, and postpartum.
We work to:
mitigate health disparities by increasing access to doula support for a diversity of people and families, including rural, tribal, and other underserved communities
support doulas around the state in their role, through advocacy, training and education of the public and the healthcare system
increase the diversity of trained doulas and birth companions around the state of New Mexico, including racial, social and geographical diversity
grow a community of doulas and supportive New Mexicans who will act as change agents in the maternity care landscape in New Mexico
The New Mexico Doula Association is currently organized by a volunteer steering committee.
Steering Committee members:
Esperanza Dodge, Young Women United
Steph McCreary, Tewa Women United
Carrie Murphy, CD (DONA)
