The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.

– Coretta Scott King

The Startling Truth

The United States has the highest maternal mortality rate of any country in the developed world. Delighted to Doula aims to reduce these deaths by providing free or low-cost postpartum support and education in underserved communities.

Our Commitment

We pledge to serve expectant mothers of the greater Dallas community as they recover from childbirth and begin to care for their newborns. We are committed to supporting, nurturing, and educating these mothers during that critical one-year period after giving birth.

We're Here To Help

Our postpartum doulas will help to soothe overwhelmed new mothers, teach them about potentially dangerous—and sometimes overlooked—postpartum symptoms, and even care for the baby while she gets some rest. Each of our postpartum doulas is a compassionate “mother to the mother.”

WHAT WE DO

Delighted to Doula Birth Services exists to eliminate maternal mortality in communities that have the lowest quality of care.  Our program Goal 366 offers an anti-bias approach with evidence-based physical and educational postpartum support to mothers and families.  We educate the mothers we help by providing baby care education, including understanding baby cues and bottle feeding and breast/chestfeeding support; and support for moms’ recovery, including sleep for mom and infant.  We provide full year of at-home visits, helping mothers build confidence and supporting them as they transition into parenthood.  Our support extends to cooking meals, light housekeeping, running errands, doing laundry, and assisting the mother’s personal self-care and recovery.

OUR FUTURE

We’re planning to acquire a home staffed with postpartum doulas where mothers can recover after giving birth.  Our goal is to provide the necessary postpartum support and education before the mother and infant head home.
