This April, ENAHEC's Birth Equity Project will be hosting another doula training in partnership with DONA International and Calming Nature Doula! With support and funding from Health Foundation for Western & Central New York, ENAHEC is continuing to work effortlessly to increase the doula workforce.  

Doula services have been proven to be an effective intervention to reduce maternal health disparities in women of color. Doulas play a vital role in improving maternal health outcomes and increasing positive birthing experiences; by offering continuous emotional, physical, and educational support during the prenatal period, labor and delivery, and the postpartum period. 

ENAHEC’s Birth Equity Project aims to train doulas who are representative of the community they will serve. This population includes Medicaid-eligible Black and Brown moms in Erie and Niagara counties. Doula training, typically expensive, is made easily accessible to our community through the Birth Equity Project, where the training is offered for free with only a small commitment fee

The Birth Equity Project team offers all the resources needed to become a great doula and a certified Medicaid provider. Including initial doula training, supplemental training, shadowing, and more. 

We are looking forward to working with future doulas of our community!

If you are interested in participating in the next Doula training scheduled April 11 - April 14, 9am - 6pm apply by March 6th using the following link: or contact with any questions.
