SisterWeb is committed to building a community where Black, Latinx, and Pacific Islander pregnant women*, their partners, and their families benefit from the expertise, support, and advocacy of a birth companion (doula) to have a satisfying and dignified birth experience.
We do this in two ways.
First, SisterWeb connects pregnant individuals in San Francisco with culturally compatible birth companions who can help parents-to-be receive the education, resources, and support they need to enter into their birth and parenting journeys with confidence, respect, and dignity.
Second, SisterWeb strengthens and diversifies the birth provider workforce by training and mentoring birth companions and building relationships with traditional healthcare providers such as physicians, midwives, and hospitals.
*While SisterWeb primarily uses the terms woman/women and the pronouns she/her/hers, we recognize, respect, and welcome people who identify with different pronouns, including they/them/theirs or he/him/his.
