Provide Doula Care To Teen Survivors

Provide Doula Care To Teen Survivors
Mar 22, 2019

Baby Talk!

Yesterday, your teen parents met each other for the first time!

They spent an hour exchanging birth stories, the good and the ugly, during the monthly Birth Chat you funded. Connie, our lead birthworker, noticed a common thread: fear and confusion in the birth room. One teen reported people yelling in the room and another of aggression from the hospital staff. 

That doesn't have to be the case.

A Doula provides advocacy for the birthing parent, serving as a companion and champion when they're at their most vulnerable. Your donations ensure healthy + holistic birthing experiences for teen survivors of sexual violence. Thank you for your generosity.

Today, take a couple of minutes to share this project with your friends and loved ones. We can't wait to introduce them to the newest members of the Firecracker family as soon as they're born. 

All the best,

Crystal Gause
