To support disadvantaged girls to thrive, to equip them with skills for good health and build strong bonds with others in their community.

by Greater Manchester Doulas CIC in Manchester, England, United Kingdom

Greater Manchester Doulas CIC is run by women, for women. We are Elle, Lauren and Amy; three doulas with the same vision - which is why we work so well as a team!

We work with women before conception, throughout pregnancy and birth, and after women have given birth, whether that is during the postpartum period or years later.

Our mission is to support women to realise their innate power and wisdom by:

  • Defending women’s human rights
  • Providing holistic support and accessible education
  • Building sisterhood between women

We support women in lots of different ways, from our free community groups to 1 to 1 birth support, and from our years of experience we have learnt a few things. We realised that a lot of the myths that women believe about themselves and their bodies are from seeds planted when they were young girls.

Girls face harmful messages from society which they internalise & carry into adulthood, damaging their potential & overall health. Our Girls' Circles project, aimed at ages 8-12 years old, are a low-cost intervention addressing these complex issues with long-term positive effects.

Through engaging activities, we will equip girls with tools for good lifelong health & skills to build strong bonds & community. We will bring this model to disadvantaged girls to empower them to thrive. Local girls regardless of their background will be offered rich opportunities to socialise & build strong social bonds, reducing isolation in their community. 

Through holistic mentoring, girls will discover & build their confidence, perceptiveness, assertiveness, strength, integrity, & self-esteem. These skills can then be extended to others, building a more resilient community.
