Abortion Doula Services
Baltimore Doulas Project is committed to providing empowering, nonjudgemental and client-centered physical and emotional support to people before, during and after their abortion. We recognize that every person’s abortion experience is unique and we believe that all people should have access to the information, support, and resources necessary to make informed decisions.
Currently, BDP is providing abortion doula support to clients at two clinics in the Baltimore area, and we are in the process of expanding to another clinic this year. We also partner with the Baltimore Abortion Fund to meet the needs of those seeking practical support such as childcare and transportation during their abortion procedure.
We seek to recognize the obstacles that people of all backgrounds face in reaching reproductive health services, but particularly low-income people, LGBTQI-identified people, youth and people of color. We believe that people of all genders deserve care and respect when accessing abortion.
We have been providing abortion doula services since July 2014, originally under the name Baltimore Doulas for Choice and with the mentorship of the DC Doulas for Choice Collective and The Doula Project in NYC. We host annual abortion doula trainings for those in the Baltimore area with the interest and capacity to volunteer with us.
If you are interested in our services or would like to volunteer please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
