Hybrid Abortion Doula Training REFRESHER (online or in person in Long Beach area) on Sunday July 31st, from 9:30 AM to 5:30 PM PST

•This full day intensive is meant to serve as a refresher for those who have already taken an abortion doula training, to brush up on their knowledge of how to support folks as an abortion doula, how to provide post abortion support (including working w/plant medicine), safety & security in a digital world, & diving deeper into navigating the rapidly changing political & legal landscape.

*There will be guest presenters, as well as resource guide that will be shared with everyone in attendance.*

•This training is only for BIPOC, who are part of our collective, or community members who can be vouched for (& have already taken an abortion specific doula training or it was an included section in their full spectrum doula training—not just a mention.) **If none of these things apply: there are many full spectrum/ abortion doula trainings to take, find one that aligns! We also have a full spectrum doula training in October & we cover it. **
