Hello everyone,
My name is Mahal and I'm trying to become a birth and post partum doula. I live in South East Michigan. I am 17 years old and in desperate need for some funds and I'm hoping people here can help me out.

My dream is to eventually be a midwife but until then I want to support folks in a very important era of their life: parenthood. I want to support people from pregnancy till the 4th trimester. Which brings me to why I’m asking for help.

Here is the program that I plan on taking my training from: http://center4cby.com/dona-postpartum-doula-training.html
Sadly I’m not old enough to accept the state scholarship for doulas and I’m already obligated for giving free births and just can’t afford to give more free services at the moment.


Another program I'm interested in training with is ICTC( International Center for Traditional Childbearing), they're hosting a training in Chicago. Here is more information about their training http://ictcmidwives.org/doula-training/. I would love love to go to their training sense they specifically want to help black women and children. As a young black woman I really connect with that.

With post partum doula training I can follow the continuity of care model and also offer more services that will help me support women and in turn support myself. So please help.

Hi, I found your link on fuckyeahhardfemme. I just want to let you know that I think postpartum doulas are so important. I suffered from PPD after having my daughter and I found out just how neglected post-partum services are! I'm so happy people like you have the vision to see the whole woman during pregnancy and beyond. Thank you! Anyway, I am living my professional dream as a research scientist but many people have helped me get here. I know that getting funds for training in alternative professions like doula work is really challenging. Good Luck!
