Who We Are
SisterWeb Community Doula Mentors provide crucial, on-call support and ongoing mentorship to SisterWeb Doulas so they have the guidance and support needed to provide exceptional care to the communities SisterWeb serves (Latinx, Pacific Islander, and Black/African American birthing families)
To promote equity in access to doula care and to promote financial sustainability and longevity in the birth workforce for doulas from historically un-supported communities in San Francisco, through robust doula education and mentorship support to Latinx/Native, Pacific Islanders, and Black/African American identifying doulas as phenomenal birthworkers.
Commitment to Sisterweb Doulas
We believe in each one of SisterWeb’s doulas ability to excel as birth workers, through identifying their strengths, assisting them in identifying their own support systems, modeling boundary setting/communication skills, and creating doula centered goal plans. Our hope is to inspire confident, knowledgeable, and skilled birth workers and that our shared wisdom augments their ability to contribute to their clients feeling of being well supported. We hope to provide strong support between our in-person mentorship sessions, our monthly education workshops, and our 24/7 on-call phone support while doulas attend births. We are dedicated to supporting doulas goals, promoting safe and robust doula care, and providing guidance in navigating the interdisciplinary relationships in birth work. We encourage doulas to provide us with feedback to further strengthen our ability to be mentors. We strive to develop meaningful and long lasting relationships with each doula to deepen the SisterWeb.
