Meet the doulas: Liz

Who are the doulas who volunteer with the BADP?  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 Liz.

Liz is a full-spectrum doula, a student nurse and a future Midwife.  She facilitates the Bay Area Doula project’s monthly Salon Series on Reproductive Health.  In the past she has volunteered as a birth doula with the San Francisco General Volunteer Doula Program, worked as a counselor for women choosing abortion at the Women’s Options Center, and volunteered as a doula with Mother Health International in rural northern Uganda.  Liz is committed to supporting individuals to understand, articulate and embody their own truth with respect to their reproductive experiences. She is passionate about the role of lay-healthcare practitioners in improving reproductive health outcomes and is committed to empowering communities to participate in providing for their health care needs.

Serious question, how many times have you seen anatomy photos with Black women and Black babies in the womb? At the doctors office, medical books, anywhere?

This is one reason that keeping abortion legal is not enough. It's already extremely difficult for many people -- even in CA -- to arrange funding, travel, childcare, etc. It's also why we do what we do. When things are already that hard, it's vital to have a support system.
