Hello lovely doulas,
Firstly, a huge thank you for taking the time to respond to our survey about the PIFF. With the wonderful feedback that was provided and further opportunities and ideas that have come to light in the last few weeks, we are excited to announce that it will be called the Pay it Forward Program (PIFP) because, this is going to be MUCH more than just a fund. We are going to partner with other organisations such as The Happy Baby Community, not only to provide doula support to people in need, but also to help people from disadvantaged and marginalised communities to become part of our doula cuddle at the association, by providing subsidised training for doulas in partnership with the Birth Bliss Academy and hopefully in the future, other doula course providers, and then, ongoing support through the Doula Association. We want to have a diverse organisation that truly pays it forward, in as many ways as we can. We are dedicated to putting structures in place to ensure that this is not just a statement but a reality.

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.
