Debra is committed to offering scholarships to individuals who identify as BIPOC. 

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. Scholarships submission will be accepted on a rolling basis and open until filled. Learn more and apply
