The NYC Doula Project is recruiting!

The Doula Project, based in New York City, is recruiting it’s next round of doulas.

I helped to found The Doula Project a few years back alongside Mary Mahoney and Lauren Mitchell. I left NYC before the project really got going and came back to it just this fall. It’s an absolutely amazing crew of folks working to provide doula care to people across the spectrum of pregnancy. I work, through the project, providing support to women having abortions in a public hospital.

I cannot say enough good things about this project!

If you are in NYC you should definitely apply.

I am not part of the application vetting process, but know that you don’t need to have previous doula experience to apply. Folks are trained to do the abortion doula work by the project itself. Birth doula training is only necessary if you want to do the birth components of the project, but it’s not a requirement.

Full details and application here.
