Hello, Tapestry was founded in 2020 to work toward solutions to the unsatisfactory health outcomes in the United States during the reproductive years, especially for BIPOC and LGBTQIA people.
- When woven through some of life’s most profound experiences, doula support helps to strengthen weaknesses. We chose tapestry to represent this.
- Doulas bring comfort. We chose fabric names and qualities to describe what we do.
- Then we added hello because, well, we want to meet you and create community!
Doulas are knowledgeable and compassionate individuals trained and certified to provide independent, non-clinical support to people experiencing the myriad emotions associated with conception, birth and postpartum, as well as at other points during their reproductive cycles. Our tiered support expands top-quality access–not just to those who can afford it.
Doula support and advocacy has been shown to “enhance resilience” to health-related factors.
The doulas at Hello, Tapestry benefit from member-to-member support as we carve out our work in the community. An affordable monthly membership provides access to regular meetups, peer review, shared marketing and organizational tools, and community outreach events.
