The Long Island Doula Association, Inc., (LIDA) is an organization which provides birthing professionals with the opportunity to network, obtain continuing education and professional growth through our monthly meetings.
Through public appearances, LIDA, Inc., educates the community as to the benefits of having a doula before, during and after their birth. We empower the families we work with to make informed choices for their birth and postpartum period. LIDA, Inc., is a multi-professional organization operating on the paradigm that birth is normal and as such provides evidence based information and positive support for women in the early stages of motherhood, from conception through postpartum.
LIDA, Inc., is passionate about supporting birthing families. Through our families in crisis fund we are able to provide professional childbirth support to families in crisis at little or no cost to those in need.
