Sanctuary Doulas is an interdisciplinary team of compassionate, maternal health professionals supporting growing families throughout the childbearing years. Our team is made up of birth and postpartum doulas, overnight doulas, lactation consultants, massage therapists, psychotherapists, family chefs, nutritionists, and herbalists, all of whom are honored to play an integrative role in supporting families during this special season of life. We know factors of race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, culture and privilege can all impact this delicate season in monumental ways. We understand these factors often compound on each other, leaving families unable to access support that could be extremely beneficial as they step into this new chapter of their lives. Our care is rooted in providing evidence-based, professional care to ALL families and it is our privilege to partner with our sister organization, The Abundance Project, to carry out its mission by providing care funded by The Abundance Project scholarships. The team is led by Ali Batwin and Jess Hanlin, two women passionate about this work and expanding offerings in the most impactful and meaningful ways possible for families across their community and beyond.
