The Radical Doula Guide

Cover for The Radical Doula Guide“As a “primer” pointing outward to further exploration,The Radical Doula Guide is lovingly crafted and inspirational. It’s definitely a must-have for any (personal or institutional) collection with a focus on reproductive justice issues.” -Anna J. Cook, the feminist librarian

“A must read for anyone interested in doula work or in the birth and parenting community!” -Jillian L. Schweitzer

“An easy-to-understand, inclusive, and short introduction to diversity, privilege, and power issues relevant to providing full-spectrum pregnancy support. I bought a copy because it feels good to have this kind of book within easy reach on my shelf, even though I’m just now exploring an interest in birth activism. The sections on ability, size, and age gave me food for thought.” -Goodreads reviewer Zigforas

4.35 out of 5 stars on Goodreads!

In August 2012 I published The Radical Doula Guide, a 52 page political primer that addresses the political context of supporting people during pregnancy and childbirth.

The guide provides an introduction to full spectrum doula work—supporting people during all phases of pregnancy, including abortion, miscarriage, birth and adoption—as well as a discussion of how issues like race, class, immigration, gender and more affect our work as doulas. You can read an excerpt of the introduction published at Womens Enews.

With the help of my community I raised over $4000 to support the printing and creation of the guide. Thank you to everyone who supported this project!

    Hi! I was wondering if I could purchase this as an online text rather than a book version?
    Thanks!

      Unfortunately not yet. Probably eventually I will make an e-copy available, but for now there are only printed copies available. Thanks for your interest!
