So your friend is having an abortion--how can you help? A doula perspective.

Abortion doula or full spectrum doula collectives are forming across the U.S. If you have not had the opportunity to be trained, this is your starting point. We will discuss the role of doulas, the types of support abortion doulas can offer, and the skills you need to provide non-medical support to people having abortions. We will be centering the experience(s) of queer, trans, and gender non-conforming folks seeking abortion care, and sharing/discussing specific ways to support these friends and community members. This workshop won't be enough to prepare you to work shifts in a hospital or clinic, but it will help you be better prepared to support the people in your life who are having abortions and to imagine an abortion doula service in your community.
