Open Letter to Advent Health

To Hospital Administrator

My name is Jessica Greene and I am the owner of Kooshlie Care Doula Services in Asheville, NC. I am a DONA certified birth and postpartum doula, a Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator and have been serving clients in WNC for the past six years.

During the latest round of childbirth classes, it has come to my attention that doulas are still not able to physically attend with their clients when birthing at Advent Health. This is concerning and a bit disheartening for me. I know that Advent Health has spent several years now working on their ‘Baby-friendly’ status and that you truly value the health, safety, and satisfaction of your families.
