March's Nonprofit Spotlight is on Michigan Prison Doula Initiative!

The mission at MPDI is to provide compassionate birth and parenting support to incarcerated people.

The Michigan Prison Doula Initiative provides trauma-informed, survivor-centered perinatal support for pregnant prisoners in Michigan. Their team proudly represents the community they serve and will be ever grateful for the passage of Michigan policy directive 04.04.155, sanctioning access to their care. While the U.S. is full of stories of deeply unfortunate birthing experiences, MPDI believes there is no more vulnerable population than incarcerated pregnant people. Their lack of support draws MPDI to this vital work.

Compassion over stigma.
