The Doula Project

Year Participated



New York, NY


The Doula Project is a New York City-based organization that provides free compassionate care and emotional, physical, and informational support to people across the spectrum of pregnancy. 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 face birth, miscarriage, stillbirth, fetal anomaly, or abortion. The Doula Project has local and national programming. Locally, we organize and train volunteers on the doula model of care in abortion clinics. We place our trained doulas in clinics that we partner with and manage the relationship between the two. We also partner with an adoption agency and birth centers in NYC to provide free birth doula support to their clients. We organize monthly meetings for our doulas which include skills-based trainings and a chance to talk about their experiences as doulas and connect with other doulas in the project. Nationally, we provide training, guidance, and resources to activists and health professionals interested in the abortion doula model of care.
