Our Mission

The mission of the Community Doula Birth Program (CDBP) is to improve overall birth outcomes by providing evidence-based education, continuous professional labor support and community connections. CDBP is dedicated to growing the doula community by providing services to low-income families by professional doulas and mentored doulas-in-training.

The Community Doula Birth Program provides reduced cost doula services to low-income pregnant women and their families in the Greater Portland area by connecting doulas-in-training with families in need. We provide services to MaineCare participants, those in a financial hardship, refugees, immigrants, and more. Doulas-in-training are matched with experienced mentors who provide support through the course of their services.
