Birth in America is your ultimate resource for all things related to childbirth education and the invaluable support provided by doulas. Whether you are an overseas-born parent in the United States or simply seeking comprehensive information about childbirth, our website is designed to provide you with everything you need to know to make informed decisions about your journey to parenthood.

Childbirth Education

One of the most important aspects of preparing for childbirth is education. Our team of experts at Birth in America understands the unique challenges faced by overseas-born parents and the need for tailored information regarding the birthing process in the United States.

Our childbirth education programs cover a wide range of topics, including prenatal care, labor and delivery, pain management techniques, breastfeeding, and postpartum care. We believe that by providing comprehensive and evidence-based information, parents can approach childbirth with confidence and make informed decisions that best suit their individual needs.

Overseas-Born Parents

For overseas-born parents, navigating the intricacies of the U.S. healthcare system and understanding cultural differences can be overwhelming. Birth in America aims to bridge this gap by offering resources and support specifically tailored to the needs of overseas-born parents.

Our childbirth education programs include detailed information about the U.S. healthcare system, insurance coverage, language services, and cultural considerations. By equipping parents with this knowledge, we empower them to actively participate in their healthcare and make informed choices throughout the birthing process.

The Role of Doulas

In addition to childbirth education, Birth in America recognizes the crucial role that doulas play in providing emotional, physical, and informational support to parents during pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period.

A doula is a trained professional who offers continuous support to individuals and couples before, during, and after birth. They provide non-medical assistance, offering comfort measures such as relaxation techniques, breathing exercises, and various positions to enhance the laboring experience. Doulas also act as advocates, ensuring that parents' voices and preferences are heard and respected throughout the birthing journey.

Benefits of Doula Support

Research has shown that having a doula present during labor and birth can have numerous benefits. Studies indicate that doula support may lead to:

  • Reduced rates of cesarean sections
  • Shorter labor and reduced need for pain medications
  • Increased satisfaction with the birth experience
  • Decreased rates of postpartum depression
  • Improved breastfeeding success

At Birth in America, we believe that every parent deserves the opportunity to have a positive and empowering birth experience. That's why we provide a comprehensive directory of certified doulas who specialize in supporting overseas-born parents. Our directory enables parents to connect with experienced doulas in their area, ensuring a personalized and nurturing experience throughout their pregnancy and beyond.


Birth in America is your trusted source for childbirth education and support. Our aim is to equip overseas-born parents with the knowledge and resources needed to navigate the U.S. healthcare system and make informed choices. Through our comprehensive childbirth education programs and access to certified doulas, we strive to empower parents, promote positive birth experiences, and support the transition into parenthood.
