We know that not everyone can afford the education necessary for their dream career.

Globally, women, especially women with children and dependants in their care, miss out on educational opportunities which could lead to an earning potential. This is something that we are working to overcome at bebo mia inc.

Our mission is to support women* in connecting to their intrinsic value and power.

We believe that education, especially education that will support your income, is power. Each year bebo mia inc. offers scholarship placements to women in financial need so that they can complete our Maternal Support Practitioner training and launch their doula careers.

We have issued scholarships to women from all over the world including Ireland, England, Philippines, Canada, and the US.

Community is such a crucial aspect of our training. The women who have graduated from our program are from all over the world and yet there is a constant feeling of closeness and connection in our classes and Facebook support group. We all give and receive an incredible amount of information and praise as we go through the training and beyond. It never feels like we are separated by hundreds or thousands of miles.

Check out some of our winners: The Pinay Doulas Collective, Samantha, Joei, Brittany, April, Amber Dawn, Brianna, Ashley,  Nadine, Miranda & Amanda.

Over the last 3 years we have given out over $45,000 in full and partial scholarships.

Our Scholarship Program is growing!

This year we have opened up the Community Scholarship which allows our community to contribute to additional scholarship spots in the MSP training… and bebo mia will match dollar for dollar. With the program growing, 2018 marks the addition of the Scholarship Committee which is made up of volunteers from the community. We want to introduce you to the 2018 Scholarship Committee!

Public Health Organizations

Over the last 10 years, bebo mia inc has supported almost 100 homeless women, teens, refugees and low or no income families through their birth and postnatal experiences. While working towards their certification, our doulas in training support these families in need.

Girls in sport is something that is so important to the bebo mia inc. team.

Natasha Marchand (COO) started a 4 – 7 year old girls’ only tee ball league that filled up immediately after registration opened. We are in the second season as the corporate sponsor & league organizers with these awesome little humans.

We jumped in and we are practicing #radicalgenerosity! The #bebobabes gave $1100 to the fund to raise $1 million to be distributed as interest-free loans for women in business.

Youth Entrepreneurial Adventure

Bianca Sprague (bebo mia’s CEO) & her spouse Alana Nugent (bebo mia’s Director of Marketing) created and delivered a 17 week program in their daughter’s Grade 4/5 gifted class. The program ran 3 hours a week and covered business fundamentals as well as marketing 101. At the end of the theoretical portion of the program, the students were supported while they started their own business ventures with all proceeds going to local charities. The class raised over $1000 after their first week in business. All the students received a start up scholarship that was donated by local Toronto mompreneurs.
