To help ensure Doula Support at hospitals during the COVID-19 pandemic, we encourage you to sign this petition. Please share and spread the word so patients can receive the care they desire during their birth!
Until further notice, TBC will not be accepting in person donations. We will facilitate dispersal of items if urgent need arises. If you are in urgent need of infant care supplies (formula, diapers, clothes) or need guidance or support for your planned hospital birth during what may be a challenging period of time, please email us at Thebirthingcircle@gmail.com and we will connect you to the proper resources. If you would like to help support families in need, please visit our Amazon wishlist. This is the easiest way for us to get diapers to those most affected by closures and work disruptions caused by COVID-19.
If you are considering transferring to an out of hospital birth, we have compiled a list of providers accepting transfers. We recommend that all birthing people request a copy of their records, even if you aren’t considering OOH birth.
