LIDA is proud to partner with one of Long Island's largest birthing hospitals, NYU Langone, formally known as Winthrop, to offer a volunteer doula program. This program provides training to those interested in supporting birthing people. Through this program, laboring people have access to support from hospital-based volunteers who are trained by LIDA's experienced doula trainers. *Please note that volunteer doulas do not replace the services provided by a privately hired doula.
