The Building Perinatal Support Professionals Project (BPSP) seeks to increase the number of qualified perinatal support professionals serving communities most at risk for poor birth outcomes in Georgia.

The BPSP project will provide scholarship and support for those seeking credentialing as Certified Doulas or Childbirth Educators. We will select a cohort of 20 women, match each participant with an experienced mentor and provide additional training beyond the necessary credentialing workshops to develop opportunities for economic self-sufficiency.


The application period is currently closed. Selected cohort members will be announced on May 4th, 2018.
