We are excited to kick off 2022 with another community fundraiser, this time in support of the Nesting Doula Collective, a Vancouver island-based collective of birth workers who provide culturally affirming and anti-oppressive care to pregnant, birthing, and postpartum families who identify as Black, Indigenous, and/or people of colour (BIPOC). Our goal is to raise AT LEAST $1000, which will cover the cost of one doula for a family in need of care.
Heart & Hands Health Collective has been invited to be a Birth Ambassador and will be participating in their fundraising efforts, “It Takes a Village: 50 BIPOC Births in 2022“. The Nesting Doula Collective hopes to raise $50K for 50 births in 2022 as doula care is not supported by the medical system. Furthermore, the Collective provides their doula services at no-cost to families in order to decrease socioeconomic barriers to expectant BIPOC parents from receiving the care and support they need during a transformative period in their lives.
THURSDAYS, 10am – 2pm in January (6th, 20th, 27th),
February (3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th) AND
March (3rd, 10th) to accommodate for weather cancellations!
25% of Community Acupuncture revenues will be donated to
the Nesting Doula Collective’s $50K for 50 births.
*Please note: no hours on Jan 13th*

Nesting Doula Collective provides care and support to Black, Indigenous and communities of colour
— including immigrants and refugees, at all stages of their reproductive journey from conception to postpartum. Our approach upholds the principles of informed consent, culturally appropriate care, and community connection. We are a growing collective of Black, Indigenous, and people of colour who are trained in providing professional, empowering, and anti-oppressive Doula support to our diverse clients and families.
