Healthy Births, Sustainable Jobs
DoulaID is a grassroots project that is helping address the maternal mortality disparity crisis in Baltimore by connecting doulas to sustainable income and increasing access of Medicaid-eligible mothers to doula services.
Medicaid recently added reimbursement for doula services (up to $1447/birth). This funding is a key part of the solution to the maternal mortality inequity. DoulaID will help accelerate the number of doula registered with Medicaid.
The DoulaID app will help doulas navigate the complexities of a healthcare system built for doctors. DoulaID will guide users through the education, certification, networking, and payment process. DoulaID will also help birthing individuals connect with culturally congruent doulas.
The DoulaID app will empower doulas and users to focus on what really matters: healthy births and babies.
