What We Do

Omaha Better Birth Project works to decrease inequities in childbirth by providing access to doula services, childbirth education, and prenatal & postpartum support for low-income and teen families in the Omaha area. Providing mothers with Doulas and childbirth education classes are evidence- based practices that reduce the risk of a traumatic birth or birth complication and lead to better outcomes. However, the cost associated with childbirth education and doula services is often a significant barrier to low-income and teen families.

Currently, no other public aid or nonprofit programs in the Omaha area are
working to address this disparity in maternal health care. Omaha Better Birth
Project is stepping in to help close this gap through our birth doula and childbirth
education grants program. In addition to our grants program, we provide families in-need with monthly, supplemental diapers and wipes through our Fresh Start Diaper Program.

We envision a world where all expectant families are guaranteed access to the services, support, and education needed to set them down a path to an informed and empowered birth experience.

Interesting Info

We have supported more than 150 families with essential pregnancy, birth, postpartum, and newborn supplies.
Birth complications have risen by 36% in the last ten years, with 50% of women reporting a traumatic birth.
Our biggest goal is to secure a location for an outreach center, to provide childbirth education courses, support groups, and more to local families!
