Kindred Birth Companions
Who We are
Kindred Birth Companions is a Doula program created by and for black Doulas working as community birth workers in San Francisco.
Our purpose is to support the black family structure by empowering black families to have safe, memorable, and joyous birthing experiences. Through awareness, education, and one-on-one support we strive to remove “black” as a risk factor for morbidity, boost family resiliency and positive parenting experiences, and create a vibrant community.
In the tradition of the Granny Midwives, Kindred Birth Companions normalize and celebrate the birth experiences of black people. We believe birth is sacred and we cultivate a space of dignity, respect and trust with every family we support. Kindred Birth Companions value partnerships and strong relationships with health care professionals and provide non-judgmental support and advocacy before, during, and after birth.
