Prison Doula Services
The Baltimore Doula Project currently provides doula support to pregnant people incarcerated at the Maryland Correctional Institute for Women (MCIW). As reproductive justice advocates, we aim to provide compassionate and nonjudgmental support to our clients throughout the trying experience of pregnancy, birth, and postpartum behind bars.
We offer education during the prenatal period, continuous physical presence in the hospital throughout their birthing experience, and 1:1 postpartum visits back in the prison. In addition to offering traditional doula support to our incarcerated clients, we facilitate a bi-monthly support group for folks who are pregnant and newly parenting from the inside.
