Improving Equitable Outcomes for Mothers and Children by Expanding the Doula Workforce

Wednesday, May 25, 2022| 2:00 pm -3:00 pm

A number of states have made progress toward policy changes that would enable Medicaid reimbursement for doulas and other birthworkers. These initiatives are expected to help improve maternal and infant health outcomes, especially among groups of people who face disproportionately high rates of mortality. Join GIH for a recap of these policy actions, and for an exploration of opportunities for philanthropic engagement in the expansion of doula services. Presenters for this webinar include Amy Chen of the National Health Law Program, Jamaica Gilliam of Blaq Birth Circle, Kiana Trabue of bi3, Inc., and Atiya Weiss of The Burke Foundation.  

Join us for a discussion of issues and opportunities surrounding the expanded availability of doulas and other birthworkers.
