Building a community-based pregnancy and reproductive center for NYC birthing people that offers safe, accessible, and family-rooted midwifery and doula services
- Womb Bus
Life-threatening birth and pregnancy complications have been steadily on the rise, and Myla is on a mission to change that. Since she began as a doula in 2006, Myla has become a leader and visionary in the birth field, building a suite of community programs where people can access safe, informed reproductive care pre-, during, and post-pregnancy. Her innovation of a mobile wellness hub, the Womb Bus, brings essential education, resources, and outreach to blossoming families. This serves as a vehicle to increase awareness and provide services in preparation for The Birthing Place, a future birth center offering midwifery-led collaborative care.
Myla acts from the perspective that when we bring marginalized people to the center, care as a whole improves, and it improves for all people.
