CAPA’s Doula Project seeks mother mentors; training begins this fall
the Inland Register
(From the July 30, 2009 edition of the Inland Register)
The Childbirth and Parenting Alone (CAPA) Program of Catholic Charities Spokane is currently looking for volunteers who would like to participate as mentors to young, single, pregnant women for the Doula Project.
A doula supports and encourages a single parent through the prenatal, birthing, and early parenting experiences. Doulas make a one-year commitment to spend two hours a week with their young mother. Volunteers must be a parent, have a high school education or GED, and be at least 26 years old.
Applications for Doulas are now being accepted. Training will begin next autumn.
For more information call the CAPA Doula Project at 455-4970.
