We are reaching out this holiday season to ask for your help in expanding The Doula Project’s important work. The Doula Project works to create a society in which all pregnant people have access to the care and support they need during their pregnancies and the ability to make healthy decisions for themselves, whether they experience birth, miscarriage, stillbirth, fetal anomaly, or abortion. The funds we raise will directly increase the number of pregnant people we serve and elevate the profile and scope of the Doula Project.
2014 was an incredibly successful year for us that included:
● Partnering with a new public hospital in NYC to provide abortion doulas to pregnant people ● Partnering with a new birth center in NYC to provide birth doulas to pregnant people ● Partnering with a criminal justice organization to provide birth doulas to pregnant people ● Training 25 new full spectrum doulas and a new Board of Directors ● Providing doula support to thousands of pregnant people in NYC
Our spring fundraising campaign was our most successful yet, enabling us to expand full spectrum doula services and develop a more ambitious strategy to support even more pregnant people in the coming year. We are making great strides as an organization but know the landscape for reproductive health care in our country is daunting. The war on reproductive choice makes it increasingly difficult for pregnant people to access the services they need. Your gift this holiday season can help pay for a birth, abortion or adoption doula for clients who are in need of support - you can make a huge difference.
Our services - one-on-one pain management and relaxation guidance, information and education about pregnancy, and, above all, emotional support and empathy - are 100% tax-deductible. You can donate now online at our website or send a check to The Doula Project PO Box 20116, Greeley Square Station, NY NY 10001.
