Minnesota Doula Workforce Survey

Open April 10 through May 1, 2023
Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) is seeking to learn more about Minnesota’s workforce of doulas and birth workers in its efforts to improve the health outcomes of mothers, birthing people, and infants. MDH has hired GrayHall, a St. Paul consulting firm, to administer the survey and to complete a comprehensive report of findings.

MDH will use the survey findings to:
  • Build a more comprehensive profile of the workforce of doulas and birth workers in Minnesota.
  • Establish baseline demographic data of doulas/birth workers in Minnesota.
  • Identify important gaps in service.
  • Identify important strengths of the workforce.
  • Support strategic objectives to increase access to doula/birth worker services.
Survey answers are strictly confidential. Participants’ names and organization names will not be given or shared with any organization.
