Need Help Financing Doula Services? Contact Aviva at the Hebrew Free Loan Association

""...parent(s) are welcome to apply for an interest-free loan through Hebrew Free Loan to fund the cost of the doula. We would loan them the totality of the cost up front, and then they can spread out the repayment of the loan over a year for as little as $75/month."

This process may involve credit checks or an interview. Pittsburgh Birth Nerd, LLC is not affiliated with Hebrew Free Loan Association in any way. This information is being shared to help improve access to doulas.

2. Visit Lactation Network

Visit Lactation Network > Request a Lactation Consultation > enter Angela Starosta as your referral source

3. Wait for a Confirmation Email
