The Full Spectrum Doula Collective of Canada is happy to announce that an Abortion Doula training is in the works! The training is set to take place in Calgary, AB on November 26-27, 2022.
Some of the topics covered in the training include:
- Reproductive Justice
- Abortion Self Care
- All-Options Counselling
- Trauma-Informed Care
- Procedure Information
- Physical, Nutritional and Emotional Support
- Self Care for Doulas
- Local Dynamics
How much is the training?
The training is $125 for the weekend intensive, although we operate on a sliding scale. If this amount is not accessible to you, please send us an email.
Who should attend?
Anyone who is interested in supporting people through their pregnancy/abortion choices. There are no prerequisites, you do not have to be a practicing birth doula, but you do need to be available for a brief phone interview prior to registration confirmation.
We are being very intentional about the space we are building for this workshop, and will be offering spots to people who identify with a traditionally marginalized population first. Up until September 15th we will be accepting applications for registration from people who identify with a marginalized population. From September 15th onwards, registration will be open to everyone, with a sustained focus on trying to ensure that who attends the workshop is reflective of the communities that we serve.
If you would like to be put on the registration list, please fill out the form below. We will email you to set up a time to have a phone interview.
Prior to the training we will send out a more detailed itinerary.
Thank you for your interest in the Abortion Doula training and for your work with reproductive justice. The work you do, or want to do, is important.

I am SO interested, will there be any events that you know of for this in Ontario?
Thanks in advance.
Hi Kady – I know I replied in email, but will add here to the public forum. We are looking at options to offer a training in Ontario. We will keep you posted if/when this will happen.
Hello, I am interested in your next Alberta class, or if you happen to have a cancellation for the March class
Hi Lauren, we have a substantial wait list for the March training. I would still recommend adding your name to it so they if/when we offer another training in the future, we will know to contact you.
How does one “self identify” as a marginalized group? What a slap in the face to marginalized people who can’t just opt out by simply NOT identifying as such.
