Doula Association of Reproductive Loss and Abortion (DARLA) is hosting our Spring on-campus abortion doula training! A "doula" is someone who provides emotional, informational and physical support to another person during a potentially tough experience. In this training, you will learn about abortion and birth control procedures, reproductive justice, and many many emotional support techniques.
DARLA is committed to providing emotional, physical and informational support to people who are experiencing pregnancy termination or loss in Western Mass.
UMass Amherst campus - exact location provided upon registration.
Saturday April 21st 10:30am - 5:30pm & Sunday April 22nd 10:30am-1:00pm
(Snacks provided on both days and brunch provided on Sunday)
Anyone (students, community members, staff, faculty etc.) who is interested in becoming an abortion doula or just wants to learn how to be better at emotional support!
If you want to volunteer with DARLA as an abortion doula in-clinic, you are required to attend this training. However, you are not required to work with DARLA if you attend the training - you are allowed to attend to expand your own personal understanding of the issues and your view without committing.
