About

The BLA (Black Lives Abuela) Scholarship Fund.

Black women are at greater risk during the perinatal period. They are five times more likely to die than their white counterparts. Therefore the world needs more Black Birthworkers as a matter of urgency.

With this in mind, Abuela Doulas have created a BLA (Black Lives Abuela) Scholarship Fund for Black people to train with us and become outstanding doulas supporting Black Birth.

Applying for the BLA Scholarship Fund:

The scholarship is a gifted place on one of the Abuela Doula training courses. The donated scholarship funds will be used to pay your expenses to complete the course eg, the reading list, travel and accommodation (when we meet face to face) and any required stationary.

Donating and Sponsoring a trainee Black Birthworker:

Your money will be used to train the Black Birthworkers of tomorrow. Please donate and become an ally.

Abuela Doulas has anti racism, cultural safety and inclusion embedded in the very core of our work. It is not an optional extra.
