First 5 Orange County’s Doula Stipend Program Application will be live on December 12.
Our Stipend Program provides financial assistance to selected applicants as they pursue Medi-Cal provider status in alignment with the Department of Health Care Services’ recently released Doula Benefit.
First 5 Orange County launched the Doula Stipend Program to support our local efforts to increase use of the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) doula benefit. This benefit has been in effect since January 2023 and is aimed at addressing maternal health disparities among the Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) community.
Stay tuned for more information on the Doula Stipend Program and the application!
