Helping Adolescent & Adult Pregnant & Parenting Young women
*Project HAPPY Maternity Care Services provides compassionate/non-judgmental support and education services to all pregnant people with no regard to race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, disability, or age. Under special circumstances and when eligible, Project HAPPY Maternity Care Services will provide Doula care to those who may not be able to have the education and support provided by an organization like this if we did not exist. The heart of Project HAPPY Maternity Care Services is for all families that choose to have us support them through their pregnancy journey feel empowered to experience pregnancy and birth without fear, judgement, or ridicule.
