About the Doula Ad Hoc Committee

Delaware Healthy Mother & Infant Consortium (DHMIC) Doula Ad Hoc Committee pursues the health of women, infants, and families through a life course approach. Life course is a way of thinking and doing. DHMIC’s approach includes planning WITH the community, thinking holistically about women’s health, and addressing intergenerational health. We support a continuum of services promoting optimal health from birth throughout the lifespan, from one generation to the next. 

Chaired by Representative Melissa Minor-Brown and Co-Chaired by Christiana Andrews
