Doulas Win National Award

Lexington Medical Center Doulas pose with the Annie Kennedy Award

Congratulations to the Lexington Medical Center Doulas for winning a prestigious national award! DONA, the Doulas of North America, awarded the LMC Doula Program its Annie Kennedy Award at the organization’s annual conference in August. Recipients of the Annie Kennedy Award have demonstrated excellence and dedication to their community as well as growth and teamwork in their program.

A doula is a personal birth coach who offers mothers-to-be comfort and reassurance during labor and delivery. The LMC Doula Program has also served as a benchmark for other hospital-based programs across the country. Currently, the program has sixteen doulas on staff, and almost half of the staff has been with LMC for ten years or more. Since the LMC Doula Program began fifteen years ago, it has assisted more than 6,500 families.
