Birth Day Presence hosts this incredible workshop at their Park Slope Studio. Trainings are from 9AM to 6PM over the course of 3 days (during COVID-19 restrictions, online workshops start & end times may vary, and workshop may take place over 4 days instead of 3 – please refer to Birth Day Presence’s site for specifics).
Birth Day Presence and Debra Pascali-Bonaro offers two partial scholarships for DONA Approved Birth and Postpartum Doula Trainings. These scholarships are meant for people who would not otherwise be able to attend the training because their financial resources are limited. If you have the means to pay for the full training, or if you have limited resources but do not identify as BIPOC, payment plans are available.
In childbirth, systemic racism is the root cause of disparities leading to higher maternal mortality rates for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC). Doula support from people from the BIPOC community improves outcomes and makes a difference in more positive birth experiences. Doulas are an essential part of collaborative, respectful quality care. Our training is for a diverse group of people. We offer 2 partial scholarships for every workshop to individuals who identify as BIPOC and have shown:
- ~ A commitment to addressing racial and/or social justice
- ~ Have a financial need for scholarship assistance
- ~ Will use doula skills to support their community
If you feel that you meet the above criteria, please submit a short essay or submit a 1-min video addressing the questions below. Here are some questions to consider as you write or speak. Please submit to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Why do you want to become a Birth or Postpartum Doula and what do you hope to gain from this training?
- In what capacity would you like to serve birthing people and their families?
- How do you see yourself creating change through birthwork?
- How will this scholarship help you with your future goals?
- Do you identify as BIPOC?
Scholarships submissions will be reviewed on a rolling basis and awarded until filled.
