BIRTH WORKERS OF COLOR SCHOLARSHIP
We know race impacts birth in our nation. we believe having greater diversity in birth workers is one way we can help improve outcomes.
We can't solve systemic racism. We can't single handedly improve the disparity in birth outcomes and postpartum depression for women of color. We know doulas are world changers, and doulas can help improve birth for all women. In partnership with The Grand Challenge we are offering scholarships for women of color.
A portion of every registration goes to support BEST’s scholarships for under represented communities in birth work, part of our effort to improve our country’s maternal mortality crisis and support the most vulnerable populations while pregnant, birthing, and postpartum.
