“Nine months after launching, Indian River County Healthy Start is experiencing their own birth, with a successful Community Doula program paving a path to provide a unique, free program available to every mother, every family, every baby.
Doulas are trained, non-medical professionals who provide emotional, physical, and educational support to a mother who is expecting to help them achieve the healthiest, most satisfying experience possible.
Indian River County Healthy Start Coalition is one of a kind, successfully launching their Community Doula services and training programs – the only one within Florida. Charged by the state with the responsibility of assessing and implementing ways to improve maternal child health within Indian River County, the Coalition created this program to bridge a gap in need and cultivate a mindset of community advocacy.
