Mewinzha is a non-profit organization created to promote healthy birthing practices by...
- working as doulas, childbirth educators, and breastfeeding coaches to empower women during pregnancy, labor, delivery and breastfeeding.
- providing support and educational services for pregnant women and their families.
- reclaiming and promoting healthy birth practices for Aniishinaabe people.
Doula care is an integral step in the re-introduction of social and emotional support during pregnancy and childbirth which has the potential to improve health outcomes of women and children.
It can have implications that extend beyond just one birth, and even beyond one generation. Doulas can help women and their families reclaim a legacy of power and birth traditions that have systemically been taken away.
The Mewinzha Ondaadiziike Wiigaming, a Native American Indian organization, is committed to community centered holistic care for all pregnant and birthing mothers, and their families. Services will be delivered by knowledgeable, respectful and compassionate caregivers while honoring the wisdom that exists in all cultures for the celebration of birth.
