The Get Babied Foundation is a non-profit that supports families in Austin that are unable to afford doula care. With this fund we are able to offer scholarships to qualifying families so that a doula can become part of their birth plan. Not every woman can afford a doula. But every woman deserves one. The Get Babied Foundation is a registered non-profit in the state of Texas, and your donation is tax deductible.
We encourage those who need support services and doula care to apply for our scholarship. Scholarships will be awarded based on qualifying income parameters, special circumstances or a combination of both. Income guidelines are based on state income guidelines for support services such as WIC. If you already are receiving WIC or any type of state support please disclose that in your application.
Once an application is received we may contact you for additional documents such as proof of income or proof of state assistance. The application is reviewed by our Board of Directors and a decision will be rendered by our board. You will then be contacted with a response. If approved, you will be directed on how to proceed with paperwork.
We hope you will apply for our scholarship even if you aren’t quite sure if you qualify. Every woman deserves a doula!

We encourage moms and their family members to please come back and pay it forward by donating when they can so our scholarship fund can continue to help others moms and families in need of a doula!
