Our values as an organisation are: Reliability, Accountability, Integrity, Community, and Respect.
We believe all women and birthing people should be treated with integrity and respect and have support at this transitional time in their lives. In accordance with our Operational Team Position Statement on Bias in Perinatal Services, we have set up The Doula Association Pay It Forward Fund - PIFF, to give opportunity for people who would like doula support for their birth or postnatal period, to be able to access this, where their own means do not allow.
Donate today or on a monthly basis →
All money in TDA PIFF will go towards funding doula support for birthing people who fit our eligibility criteria which are as follows:
are experiencing financial hardship
And one or more of the following criteria:
are part of an ethnic minority group e.g. Black, Brown, Asian
are fleeing domestic violence or abuse
are a survivor of trafficking
are homeless or living in temporary accommodation
have a disability
have a mental health condition
are a lone parent
are requiring support from the UK benefit system

If you do not fit our eligibility criteria for the pay it forward fund, please do search for doulas in your local area and see if they are able to meet your budget. Many doulas work on a sliding scale and may be able to help you at a reduced fee.
