Abortion Doula Training

REGISTRATION IS CURRENTLY FULL

ANY APPLICATIONS SENT IN FROM NOW ON WILL BE PUT ON A WAITLIST AND YOU WILL BE CONTACTED IF SPACE OPENS UP.

The response to this workshop was amazing, thank you to everyone who filled out their application form!

The Full Spectrum Doula Collective of Canada is happy to announce our first ever Abortion Doula training! The training is set to take place in Calgary, AB on March 3-4, 2018. 

Some of the topics covered in the training include: 

  • Reproductive Justice
  • Abortion Self Care
  • Access
  • All-Options Counselling
  • Procedure Information
  • Physical, Nutritional and Emotional Support
  • Self Care for Doulas
  • Local Dynamics

How much is the training?

The training is $85 for the weekend intensive, although we operate on a sliding scale. If this amount is not accessible to you, please send us an email. Our priority is to share information with passionate people who will inspire change, not to make a profit.

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. Between November 13th – December 1st we will be accepting applications for registration from people who self-identify with a marginalized population. From December 2nd 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 (now it’s the waitlist), please fill out the form below. We will email you if space opens up 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.

    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.
