About the Doula Project! (and why this cause is important!):
The goal of The Doula Project is to train birth workers and reproductive health advocates from the NYC community and nationwide to become doulas, or people who accompany women choosing adoption, abortion, or parenting through their experience from start to finish. We offer non-judgmental emotional, informational and physical support and companionship for all reproductive choices and hope to help them feel empowered in making the right decisions for their lives.
YOUR DONATIONS WILL HELP US CONTINUE TO DO THIS WORK, HELP OUR PROJECT GROW!
