Abortion doulas are helping more women who are having a termination
Sunday 21 Oct 2018
You’ve probably heard of pregnancy doulas, maybe even death doulas, but now more women are turning to little-known abortion doulas to guide them through the process of having a termination. A doula is a woman who gives support, help, and advice to another woman, traditionally during pregnancy and birth.
Using a doula is becoming more popular – one study found that the number of women who used a doula during pregnancy doubled between 2006 and 2013 from 3% to 6%.
