What is Perinatal Safe Spot?

Member of the National Perinatal Task Force

"A Perinatal Safe Spot  is a physical or virtual space, or both – a place where families can safely connect and find support.

A Perinatal Safe Spot is also a place to utilize the four tenets of The JJ Way® model of care which enable ANYBODY who cares to make a positive difference in a pregnant or parenting person’s life.

The tenets are to provide ACCESS, CONNECTIONS, KNOWLEDGE and EMPOWERMENT  in order to increase the opportunities for a positive birth outcome."

This is why Peachy Births: Doula and Lactation Services LLC offers sliding scale services so that all families who are in need of support can access care. Access the sliding scale application here.
