In addition to launching these products, the company is also announcing the establishment of the Black Birth Equity Fund, which looks to provide expecting Black mothers with financial access to doula services.

“We are proud to see the Black Birth Equity Fund become available today to Black expectant moms and birthing individuals across the country,” Angela D. Aina, co-founding executive director at Black Mamas Matter Alliance and Baby Dove Strategic Advisor said. “For Black and other traditionally marginalized communities, Doulas have been proven to help reduce health disparities, as well as bridge language and cultural gaps between families and health providers. With notable support from global brands like Baby Dove, we will be able to raise greater awareness of Black maternal health, promote advocacy, and shift culture to support reproductive justice.”
