Birth for Humankind
Birth for Humankind is a Melbourne non-profit organisation that exists to ensure that all women, regardless of their socio-economic circumstances, have access to support, education and care during their pregnancy, birth and early parenting journey. The organisation was co-founded in 2014 by two doulas (professional birth companions) who observed gaps in the maternal health system for women facing socio-economic disadvantage who were often journeying through pregnancy and birth alone, under prepared and confused about their choices, leading to poorer birth experiences and maternal and child health outcomes. Birth for Humankind was created to help close these gaps. We do this by mobilising and supervising a team of volunteer doulas who give of their time to provide free one-to-one continuous care through the perinatal period for women facing socio-economic disadvantage; and by running education programs that are relevant and accessible for women in need. The majority of our clients are women from refugee or asylum seeker backgrounds who have recently arrived in Australia, don’t speak English fluently and don’t have a network of family and friends to support them. We also work with many young mums under the age of 25, women experiencing domestic violence or homelessness and women experiencing other forms of socio-economic disadvantage. We are a registered charity with a dedicated core team of eight part-time employees, 40 volunteer doulas, a committed and ‘hands-on’ board, as well as a growing community of people passionate about promoting better birth outcomes and supporting women in need.
