Welcome to our newly trained BADP doulas!

Last Sunday, October 21 the Bay Area Doula Project welcomed thirteen new volunteers to our organization during an all-day training held in Oakland. We are very excited to work with all the amazing new doulas who bring a wide range of experiences to this work. Thanks to everyone who helped to organize and lead the training, including Lauren Rios, who gave a great presentation on surgical abortion procedures, Rani Tserotas who led the hands-on physical support part of our training, BADP volunteers Sally, Becky, and Kelly who co-facilitated the training, and of course our wonderful co-directors Holly and Poonam!

Here are a few pictures from the training:

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.
