With only a few days left in April, International Doula Month is just around the corner. May was designated as International Doula Month in 1998 and is a great time to plan an event, collaborate with community organizations dedicated to the health of women and families, or contact the press about the important work of doulas.

Looking for ideas to increase awareness of doulas in your community? We shared some ideas a few weeks ago.

DONA International will be kicking off a social media campaign with images you can use for your profile picture, facts about doulas and suggestions to help you spread the work on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc. Be sure to look for and use the hastags #IDM15 and #DONAIntl too.

We’ll share more here at The DONA Doula Chronicles soon and be sure to follow DONA International via:
