DAVIS – Sutter Davis Hospital’s volunteer doula program was recognized with 2016 American Hospital Association’s Hospital Awards for Volunteer Excellence (HAVE) honor in the Community Services Category.
The goal of Sutter Davis’ Volunteer Doula Program is to provide free doula support to laboring or postpartum patients. The term doula comes from the Greek word meaning “a woman who serves.” Volunteer doulas are non-clinical members of the care team who provide support in accordance with the medical/midwifery plan of care and patient preference. The doula’s role includes hands-on physical and psychological support during birth.
“We are honored to receive this award from such a reputable organization as the American Hospital Association,” said Jennifer Maher, CEO, Sutter Davis Hospital. “Our volunteer doula program is just one of the many services that make Sutter Davis Hospital unique. Families come from miles around to experience our birthing center and have one of our outstanding doulas help in the delivery of their baby. It’s rewarding to see that an organization such as the AHA values this program as much as we do.” Read More about Sutter Davis Hospital’s Volunteer Doula Program Earns HAVE Award
