Lamaze Expand Equity Grant

The Lamaze Expand Equity Grant is a workforce development program that aims to recruit, train, and mentor individuals from under-resourced or historically marginalized communities to become Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educators (LCCEs). The intent of this grant is to promote a diverse childbirth educator workforce and to increase access to high quality, evidence-based childbirth education for families who are often not afforded reasonable access to maternity care. Five trainees will be awarded the Lamaze Expand Equity Grant in 2022. Five mentors will also be selected to guide grant recipients through their training journey.
