Healthy Babies and Parents: How States Can Leverage Doulas to Improve Outcomes

Tuesday, October 31, 2023, 1:00-2:30pm CT / 2:00-3:30pm ET

Evidence has shown that community-based doulas are a critical part of a comprehensive system of care to improve our nation’s maternal health crisis. That’s why we’re excited to add it as a new twelfth policy to our upcoming 2023 Prenatal-to-3 State Policy Roadmap — releasing October 12.

Join us on Tuesday, October 31 for this webinar that will follow our virtual 2023 National Prenatal-to-3 Research to Policy Summit. At the Summit on October 12, we will explain why we added community-based doulas to our Roadmap—this webinar will take a deeper dive into the issue. We will explore the actions that policymakers have taken to support community-based doulas and expand access to doula care. You will hear from a panel of experts highlighting the state policies specific to insurance coverage, workforce supports, and funding options; valuing doula voice in the state policymaking process; and lessons learned from states.
