New Mexico Community Health Worker Association Open House

The S.E.A.D. Project (Support, Empowerment, Advocacy and Doulas) is having an Open House and Neighborhood Welcome from 4-7 p.m. on Friday, December 10 at their new offices at 301 Washington, S.E.

Members of the S.E.A.D. Project work to improve access to healthcare for limited English-speaking women and teens and include the UNM Hospitals Doulas community health workers who accompany women throughout their pregnancy and into labor and delivery, serving as translators and working with other healthcare providers.

Having a doula present during delivery has been shown to reduce labor time by an average of 25 percent and to significantly cut down on the use of pain killings drugs. It means safer, more natural births for moms and healthier babies. They also provide a support network for women with limited English speaking skills.
