It Takes a Village


It Takes a Village is a nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing prenatal and postpartum education and support to women and families in Southeast Missouri and surrounding areas.


We are passionate about improving access to accurate information and support on breastfeeding, increasing access to doulas, and fostering a better understanding of physiologically normal birth and the natural development of children from infancy to adolescence.


  • Hosting an annual convention that brings together parents and caregivers with local experts and resources.
  • Providing 4th trimester supply and care kits.
  • Recruiting and supporting individuals to become certified as doulas, lactation counselors, and more.
