Finally I can talk about this project, which has been in the works for what feels like years!
I’ve been working on this guide for a few months now. It’s meant to be a resource for new doulas, would-be doulas, and pretty much anyone interested who wants to learn more about the political context of doula work. It’s going to be awesome, and I’m hoping it will help enrich this amazing community of doulas that is growing everyday.
Doulas can really make a difference–but only if our work connects to a broader movement for social justice.
The guide isn’t going to be a rehashing of this blog in booklet form–it’s entirely new content, meant as a starting point for doulas who care about social justice and want to understand how their work fits in.
It feels really big to me–this is the first time I’ve invested so much energy into a Radical Doula related project, and it’s the first time I’ve ever tried to raise money for one of my projects. This blog has been a labor of love for five years, and now I’m hoping to take it offline and into the world, with your help.
You’re going to be hearing more about this in the coming weeks and months, but for starters, please check out my fundraising page and if you can, donate! I’ve got some good perks for donating, including radical doula buttons and copies of the guide. Your support means so much.
