Who are the doulas who volunteer with the Bay Area Doula Project? They’re amazing, diverse people, doing so much great work in the world, it’s hard to believe any of them has time to volunteer with us. We’ve been using this space to introduce you to many of the BADP doulas. This week, meet Jana Thompson.
After becoming a mother in 2011, Jana trained as a birth and postpartum doula and volunteered with the San Francisco General Volunteer Doula Program and trained as an abortion doula with BADP in the fall of 2012. As a result of her experiences with abortion, miscarriage, childbirth, and now as a single mother, she feels strongly about her work in the reproductive justice space and providing practical support and care so that everyone is able to “to have children, not have children and to parent the children we have in safe and healthy environments.”
