The Birth Attendants, as doulas, provide educational, emotional and physical support to incarcerated pregnant and postpartum people that enhance and extend their reproductive choices.
Our non-profit organization educates the community about the struggles and triumphs of all marginalized pregnant and parenting people.
We envision a just and safe world where women are empowered to make choices for themselves and their families, a world where services are directed toward health and well-being and encompass support and restoration for families and communities.
The Birth Attendants is not affiliated with and does not endorse any sect, denomination, institution or religion. Our services are not religiously-based and, though we carry out our advocacy and support services inside the WCCW, we are not affiliated with the Washington State Department of Corrections. We are based in the community and currently function as an independent non-profit.
