What is an abortion doula?
An abortion doula is a person who provides emotional, informational and logistical support to a person who is seeking or having an abortion. Abortion doulas often work independently, in a collective or within abortion clinics to provide services to clients.
The Richmond Doula Project is a collective of full-spectrum doulas in Richmond, VA. As a part of the Richmond Reproductive Freedom Project, a 501(c)3 that seeks to further Reproductive Justice by engaging in grassroots advocacy for the full spectrum of reproductive rights, the Richmond Doula Project offers support and education to people through all pregnancy outcomes, centering POC, LGBTQI, and other underserved communities.
The DC Doulas for Choice Collective is a DC-based, volunteer-led-and-run, pro-choice organization that seeks to provide doula care to people across the full spectrum of reproductive health, pregnancy, and choice. They specialize in working with those who are seeking abortion for any reason, choosing adoption, or anyone who would otherwise be unable to access birth support due to economic barriers.
They currently provide doula care for people choosing abortion at Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington, DC and Falls Church Healthcare Center. We are also happy to provide referrals to pro-choice doulas and resources in the area to anyone seeking support with birth, adoption, parenting, and miscarriage.
What is an abortion fund?
An abortion fund is a non-profit organization that provides financing for abortions to people who cannot afford the fees. Funds also often help provide practical support such as transportation and lodging.
The National Network of Abortion Funds builds power with members to remove financial and logistical barriers to abortion access by centering people who have abortions and organizing at the intersections of racial, economic, and reproductive justice.
With the call to “Fund Abortion, Build Power!” in mind, they're building an active grassroots base of people directly affected by barriers to abortion access to inform and implement necessary cultural and political change. Through a vision of collective power and participatory processes in partnership with their members, they are building organizing power that centers people who have abortions.
The Blue Ridge Abortion Fund has been here for 30 years, working to make access a reality for folks who need abortion care.
Headquartered in Central Virginia, Blue Ridge Abortion Fund has been serving individuals who need help paying for abortion care since 1989. They provide community members with financial support, transportation, and lodging assistance for abortions.
The Hampton Roads Reproductive Justice League works to remove financial and logistical barriers to abortion access and reproductive healthcare by organizing at the intersections of racial, economic, and reproductive justice.
Funding abortion is an act of radical care that affirms our belief that all community members should have the agency and the resources to make their own decisions about their bodies.
Based in Blacksburg, Va, the New River Abortion Access Fund (NRAAF) is a 501(c)(3) reproductive justice organization working to eliminate economic and logistical barriers to abortion access.
NRAAF operates a volunteer-run helpline that provides direct financial and practical support (rides, lodging, gas, meals, childcare, etc.) to Southwest Virginians and Appalachians seeking abortion care. We also fund callers who are living in other areas of the state, and those who are traveling to Virginia for an abortion.
The Richmond Reproductive Freedom Project (RRFP) is a grassroots organization started 10 years ago in Richmond. It’s an all-volunteer collective that helps residents of Virginia pay for assistance for abortion, transportation, lodging, meals, and ultrasounds. RRFP strives to be a resource to the community by engaging in grassroots advocacy for the full spectrum of reproductive rights.
The Richmond Reproductive Freedom Project supports access to a range of reproductive choices. Clients’ decisions when or whether to become parents are equally supported. RRFP’s mission lends specific focus to assisting people facing financial barriers to abortion services.
