Building Perinatal Support Professionals (BPSP)
The Building Perinatal Support Professionals Project (BPSP) supports low-income scholars in
pursuing a doula career pathway and helping fight birthing disparity in Georgia’s most vulnerable
The BPSP project provides scholarship and support for those seeking credentialing as Certified Doulas through DONA International. We match each participant with an experienced mentor and provide additional training beyond the necessary credentialing workshops to develop opportunities for economic self-sufficiency. All will also undergo trainings related to birthing justice and Black/brown/indigenous cultural methods.
Applications for the 2022-2023 cohort are now closed.
