Everyone Deserves a Doula!
Doulas are non-medical professionals who provide emotional, physical, and educational support during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum.
We will provide free and low-cost education, resources, and support surrounding pregnancy, birth, and postpartum services to families in need, with a targeted focus on minority, low-income, and underserved members of our Knoxville and East Tennessee community. We strive to reduce the infant and maternal mortality rate within the minority, low-income, and underserved members of this community and to raise awareness and implement structures to increase successful birth outcomes.
The vision of Gennisi Charitable Birth Services is for every mother to have access to equitable and healthy perinatal experiences.
We believe that education is one of the key elements in self-advocacy, confident autonomy, and self-sufficiency.
We believe in equal and fair treatment of all individuals despite race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, or sexual orientation.
We believe that community engagement is paramount in the advancement of collaborative efforts for equity.
We believe that working with partners
and growing relationships that produce team-effort initiatives are essential for sustaining the longevity of individual entities.
