NYS set to unveil doula program to help women during childbirth

A pilot program attempted in 2011, now re-introduced by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, would cover doula services under Medicaid in Brooklyn.

A doula, which in Greek translates to female servant, is non-medical care for women before, during and after childbirth.

“A doula is someone that offers emotional and physical support and as well as what we say at ancient song advocacy,” says Chanel Porchia-Albert, of Ancient Song Doula Services.
