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:

Congratulations to all the new BADP volunteers!
