Meet the Educator- Amelia Mattocks

I live in Greensboro, NC, and I serve my community as a full-spectrum doula and doula trainer. I am an Assistant Professor at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro where I teach in the Public Health Education Department. My previous work has been in various health education settings, including worksite wellness, SNAP-Ed, Community Health Education, and Sex Education. Social justice is the foundation of my work. In 2020, as part of a dedicated group of doulas, we started the North Carolina Doula Organization to support all doulas in the state of NC. This non-profit organization encompasses the pillars of reproductive justice and racial equity to advocate for all doulas and birthing people in our state. Doulas are for everyone, and everyone needs a doula!
