For those in Direct Provision, Women's Refuges or Shelters
"I firmly believe that every person or family who needs support during pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum, should receive support. However, I understand hiring such support privately is not a viable option for many.
If you are in financial hardship, please reach out to me. I allocate a proportion of my time to provide reduced rate support.
Doula services should be available to all those who would benefit from support, not just those that can afford it. In keeping with this belief, I also volunteer through the Doula Association of Ireland to help individuals in Direct Provision, Women's Refuges and Shelters. If this is applicable to you please reach out to the Doula Association of Ireland so they may put you in touch with a Doula local to you" ~ Bertie
The Doula Association of Ireland relies on donations to provide volunteer Doula services, so the more funds raised the more families that can be supported!
If you would like to help the Doula Association of Ireland to continue offering this support and showing up for those most vulnerable in our communities, please consider making a donation of any amount to their Hardship Fund.
