How do you define a qualified recipient for your mentorship? : A woman with secure childcare (if she is a mother), reliable transportation, passion and drive to work hard, preferably some previous experience either personal or professional.
Comments:: I am a hispanic postpartum doula near the city of Houston TX. Though we are a diverse city there are not many birthworkers of color due to the financial inaccessibility of programs. I would like to help change this by mentoring birthworkers of color. I am a postpartum doula but also a lactation educator, placenta encapsulator and soon to be breastfeeding counselor. I believe that women of color are in desperate need of support along the full spectrum of prenatal/postnatal care and I want to help make this happen in anyway I can.
