Our ongoing training for in-home abortion support – in pictures

At last weekend’s quarterly meeting which also serves as continuing training for volunteer doulas, our facilitator told us that the most important thing for supporting others is to be in a grounded place ourselves. Then she asked us to put away our notebooks and focus on beng fully present for guided meditation, a listening exercise, and massage instruction.

So I don’t have a lot of notes from the gathering, but she and I did manage to snap a few pictures.

PS. Thanks to The Radical Doula for sharing the news that we’re now offering in-home support for medication abortion. We’d be grateful to anyone else who can help us get the word out.
