Meet the Doulas: Mar Schupp

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 Mar Schupp.

Mar is a full-spectrum 2spirt radical caregiver! Understanding that historically, birth and abortion support are experiences often witnessed by close relatives and loved ones nearby; Mar felt called to practice this caregiving labor with special emphasis of sharing it within the marginalized communities they live, work and play with: people of color, queer, trans*/gender-non-conforming and young people. For Mar, becoming a full spectrum doula is a means of directly challenging the health inequities that continue to marginalize and stigmatize communities of color and queer people. Mar approaches their caregiving work with the firm belief that people are entitled to feel supported in their reproductive choice options – whether that is hormone replacement therapy or ending a pregnancy. When they are not studying to become a parter@ or dreaming up new curriculum, Mar may be found mischief-making near trees and in the Sierra mountains.

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.
