Expanding the Perinatal Workforce through Medicaid Coverage of Doula and Midwifery Services

The National Academy of State Health Policy released a toolkit designed to assist state health officials in improving maternal and infant health outcomes and the health systems that support care delivery for pregnant and postpartum people and their infants. Medicaid coverage of doula and midwifery services has the potential to improve birth outcomes especially for low-income individuals and people of color. The toolkit outlines key Medicaid policy considerations for implementing doula and midwifery services perinatally and postpartum.
