In a few weeks Mamas of Color Rising will be offering 20 women of color training to become DONA-certified Birth Companions (Doulas). The four-day training will be made available free of charge to participants in exchange for a commitment to make their services as birth companions available at no cost to other poor women of color in our community. The Birth Companion Project is one piece of MOCR’s broader campaign to increase access to birthing options for poor women of color in the greater Austin area.
Help us reach our fundraising goal for this project by attending our SXSW kick off party MAMA SAID KNOCK YOU OUT at the Historic Victory Grill in East Austin. RSVP on our Event Page and don’t forget to “like” Mamas of Color Rising’s fan page.
