The Doula Access Fund provides free doula support to those experiencing financial hardship and who find themselves in challenging situations or without a birth partner.
If you are a health professional or represent a charitable partner you may make a referral to the Doula Access Fund. We work with various agencies and charitable partners including those who provide services including maternity, mental health, refugee and domestic violence.
We believe that everyone has a right to have a positive and supported birth experience and to the best possible start in life.
Doula UK is uniquely placed with excellent infrastructure, financial stability and with a membership of 700 trained and skilled doulas across the UK to provide doula support through the Doula Access Fund.
