This new initiative, created by Kansas Birth Justice Society, is aimed at reducing health inequities for mothers and infants in Kansas by increasing access to doula care.

The Kansas Doula Alliance will advocate for fair and equitable insurance reimbursement of doula services; partner with hospitals, clinics, and medical care providers statewide to create doula-friendly environments; provide professional development and training to doulas; and increase consumer awareness of doulas through a statewide directory and other initiatives.
