If you live in Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, the Bronx, or Southern Westchester, and make less than $30,000 a year, including combined partner income, we'd love to connect you with a skilled doula on a pay what you can, when you can, donation basis.
Fill out the application and we will get you connected to a doula who can work with you.
