We interviewed more than 60 people for a series about Medicaid reimbursement for doulas, but we couldn’t fit everything they shared with us in a few articles.
We created this site to publish additional information that doulas may find useful. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our work is funded by the O’Brien Fellowship in Public Service Journalism at Marquette University in Milwaukee. The Lily, a publication of The Washington Post that elevates critical stories about women and gender, agreed to publish our series. To learn more about The Lily, you can subscribe to Lily Lines, a twice-weekly newsletter, and follow them on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
