In preparation for the Medi-Cal reimbursement shift to support doulas, BWPC helps prepare licensed providers for the integration of doulas into the payor and hospital sphere.

In the first phase of this initiative, we gather provider experiences and questions about doulas. In the second phase, we use these insights to design resources and a training module focusing on critical information.

Our training for licensed clinical providers will be available in March 2023. 

Evaluation Plan Support: 

For the second year in a row, a BWPC initiative has been matched with a student team for the UC Berkeley PH218B Evaluation for Health and Social Programs course held by Julianna Deardorff, PhD to develop an evaluation plan. The team of 4 provided support for the evaluation needs of  provider engagement.
