Women providing healing, promoting hope: Omaha Better Birth Project

For March’s Women’s History Month, we look to the 2022 theme designated by National Women’s History Alliance. This year’s theme is "Women Providing Healing, Promoting Hope." Omaha Better Birth Project does just that.

Omaha Better Birth Project (OBBP) 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. OBBP shares that 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.
