Helping hands provides financial assistance for expectant military families through the use of a Military Birth Resource Network birth or postpartum doula. The Helping Hands Program started in Okinawa, Japan and now we are expanding. The purpose of this program is to help military families afford doulas through a scholarship. With your support, more military families can have access to continuity of care during the birth or postpartum period.


The birth professionals on our listings have endorsed the MBRN Standards of Practice and  Code of Ethics, have approved base business licenses (if applicable) and preserves our goal; Our goal is to make a positive difference for pregnant women, new mothers and their families through education, nurturing and advocacy, while fostering respect, knowledge and integrity among doulas everywhere. We support all kinds of birth - unmedicated, medicated, Caesarean, VBAC, home, hospital or birth center. Every woman must make the choice for herself as to what kind of birth she desires and we as women, no matter what our views, should support each other with those choices. There are variations in the philosophies and practices of MBRN professionals.  The doulas within our network are fully trained by a national or international organization. It is the responsibility of each consumer to verify the credentials of professionals and MBRN encourages consumers to interview professionals in order to find the care that is right for each individual and family.
