" Facilitating informed and empowered reproductive healthcare experiences that respect both tradition and evidence. "
Las Cruces Doula is a collective of experienced and compassionate birth, postpartum, abortion, full-spectrum, and other specialty doulas. We are committed to providing holistic, culturally sensitive, and full-spectrum support to families during the perinatal period. Our collective is dedicated to meeting the unique needs of historically underrepresented communities of color, including our gender-diverse relatives. We prioritize the empowerment and well-being of all families and strive to foster positive perinatal experiences that promote the physical, emotional, and social health of both parent and baby.
We aspire to create a world where all families have access to high-quality full-spectrum perinatal support that is grounded in respect, compassion, and social justice. Our collective is dedicated to promoting a culture of perinatal support that is inclusive, affirming, and respectful of all identities and experiences. We envision a future where historically underrepresented communities of color, including our gender-diverse relatives, receive the support they need to thrive during the perinatal period, and where all families have access to the full spectrum of perinatal care they need, including birth, postpartum, abortion, and other reproductive healthcare services. We strive to be agents of change in the movement for perinatal equity and to work towards a world where all families can realize their full potential as caregivers and nurturers.
