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 through DONA International. We have selected a cohort of 12 women for 2020. We will match each participant with an experienced mentor and provide additional training beyond the necessary credentialing workshops to develop opportunities for economic self-sufficiency.
