All proceeds from the production go to support San Antonio Birth Doulas.

San Antonio Birth Doulas [SABD], a non-profit organization was founded in 1999 by Suzanne de Leon and Cait Womack in response to an increased need for birth and postpartum doula services among the at-risk population of pregnant teens and low-income mothers. SABD provides birth and post-partum doula services and educational classes to qualifying clients at no charge.  In July 2005, SABD merged with Catholic Charities, Archdiocese of San Antonio, Inc.

A “doula” is a person who is trained and educated in childbirth. Doulas provide prenatal and childbirth education to prepare families for the challenges of pregnancy, labor, birth and the most important part – taking the new baby home!  Doulas provide non-medical physical and emotional support to mothers and their partners during the labor and birth process with continued contact for six months and beyond.

SABD doulas and staff are very grateful to BOLDSA2015’s director Jan Olsen, stage manager Sondra Gervasi, sponsors, actors, volunteers and especially, the many families who allowed the opportunity to spend so much time away from home in preparation for the play.  It was my pleasure to return to the role of producer for the 2015 performances.  SABD appreciates all the countless hours of preparation, and the many, many rehearsals it took to bring BIRTH, a play by Karen Brody, back to San Antonio.

To our audience ~ we are so grateful that you made the choice to share an evening with us and share in the stories and birth experiences.  We thank you!

Final proceeds raised at this event will benefit San Antonio Birth Doulas (SABD), a program of Catholic Charities, Archdiocese of San Antonio, Inc.   SABD provides free doula services to pregnant teen mothers and free or reduced fee doula services to low-income mothers. The SABD site will give you additional information on the important role that doulas play during childbirth and identify the many benefits received by young at-risk mothers who are now giving birth and raising our next generation.
