Meet the Doulas: Megan Messinger

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 Megan Messinger.

Megan Messinger is a fourth-generation native San Franciscan (whose mother crossed the Bay Bridge with great determination to give birth to her in the city!), who recently returned to Berkeley after several years out East. Megan studied English and Women’s Studies at Barnard College. After graduating, Megan worked in digital marketing until she figured out that neither “digital” nor “marketing” were her ideal job descriptors. Now, a babysitter by day and post-bacc student by night, Megan is applying to medical school and hopes to bring the amazing energy of BADP and partners with her when she goes. Megan enjoys reading, green tea, and the separation of church and state.

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.
