Dear friends and supporters,
We are so thrilled to announce the pre-sale campaign for our new Zine, DIY Doula: Self-Care Before, During, & After Your Abortion. DIY Doula: Self-Care for Before, During, & After Your Abortion is a new zine created by The Doula Project’s full-spectrum doulas, doula leadership, board members, and alumni doulas who have volunteered supporting people through their procedures in clinics and hospitals across NYC. Our goal for this 48-page Zine is to be “long-distance doulas” to our readers who might not have access to a doula in their communities. While we may not be able to hold their hands during their procedures, through comics, drawings, personal essays, games and more we’re tackling some of the tough questions, affirming that people can trust their decisions, modeling how to ask for support, and giving tips on self-advocacy. The Zine also acts as a huge, diverse toolbox that gives some more practical advice and answers FAQs that we often find ourselves addressing in clinics.
