Our Research

Community-University Research Partnership

In partnership with Dr. Rebecca Shlafer (Assistant Professor, University of Minnesota), we are conducting ongoing research and evaluation of Minnesota Prison Doula Project (formerly Isis Rising). In addition to collecting information from doulas and women about their experiences in the program, we are also assessing birth outcomes (e.g., delivery method, gestational age, birth weight.) Our initial results indicate that doula care for incarcerated women may be a promising approach to improving maternal health and birth outcomes.
