The Mission of Healing Hands Community Doula Project is to eliminate the negative birth outcome disparities (high rates of preterm birth and low birth weight infants) that exist between Texas’ Black women and women of other cultures and ethnicities and to eliminate the high rates of maternal and infant mortality in Black women and infants in Texas.
