“... Rarely has there been a program providing the training AND resources for such a need. This area is well overdue for what AHEC is providing ... We NEED this! I'm so grateful and proud to be a part of such an impactful movement. I'm excited to educate mother's about the birth world and look forward to serving my community!”

Testimonials & Pictures

"I've had 5 children, 5 different experiences, each experience worse than the last. I was uneducated and after taking the doula training I realize I never received the proper care. I want to make sure Black women have someone to advocate for them so no one has to receive the lack of care that I did."
-Tiffany Blackmon, Doula
