WHAT WE DO
The Minnesota Prison Doula Project (MnPDP) provides pregnancy and parenting support for incarcerated people. We provide birth support from trained doulas, as well as group-based and individual education and support. The goal is to nurture healthy parent-child relationships and increase parenting confidence and skills.
We work with people inside Minnesota’s only women’s state prison and those held in county correctional facilities. We also support our clients upon release with resources to help facilitate a successful transition into our community.
At the end of 2019 we added support and education services to a male facility, expanding our reach to incarcerated parents.
