Interprofessional doula project Cameron, Tessa; Chung, Mina; Farr, Marcelle; Grebneva, Irina; Grimson, Karly; Lin, Katie


We were fortunate to be part of the Interprofessional Doula Seminar for our synthesis project. The Interprofessional Doula Seminar is an initiative of the Collaboration for Maternal and Newborn Health, an organization of interprofessional maternity care providers whose goal is to increase communication and interdisciplinary practice between all maternity care providers in order to improve health outcomes for expecting mothers and their infants. The doula synthesis project involves participation in weekly seminars, which bring together nursing, midwifery, and medical students to learn doula skills, and to discuss topics relevant to caring for women with addictions. As interprofessional teams, we provide doula support to women who are pregnant and using substances on the Fir Square Unit at B.C. Women's Hospital. The doula project also involves marketing the doula services by creating three brief educational sessions for the women on Fir Square.
