The BGMH Community Doula Program was established by Tara Campbell, Founder of Birthing Gently in collaboration with the Midwifery Practice at Massachusetts General Hospital's Autumn Cohen, CNM & Dana Cvrk, CNM. The goal of this program is to traditionally match Birth Doulas with  low income and at-risk patients.
