“To change the world, we must first change the way the babies are being born.”

about us

Holding Her Space

Holding Her Space is a community-based prenatal, birth and postnatal doula service that supports new mums and mums-to-be on the delicate journey into motherhood. We provide non-clinical, holistic and personalised support for women and families throughout the stages of pregnancy and parenthood. Based in Manchester and established in 2018, our team is passionate about improving outcomes for mums from African and Caribbean communities through a variety of services and also working alongside partner organisations to bridge the gap of care received.

Our Partners and Affiliates

We really couldn’t have achieved as much as we already have in such little time without the support of our partners, funders and wider community. We have overcome the setbacks and found creative ways to continue to provide our support when women and birthing people felt isolated, unsupported and scared. Thank you to our partners for your support to us in supporting our Village.
