Full Spectrum Doula: Abortion and Birth Support
I'm Yasmin. A full spectrum doula passionate about reproductive justice and women's rights - especially in the birth room.
What is a full spectrum doula?
A full spectrum doula is someone who supports you through pregnancy, childbirth, abortion, loss, miscarriage and even death.
...and what do I mean by "choose"?
To choose whether or not to be pregnant.
To choose whether or not to keep that pregnancy.
To decide, if you choose to keep the pregnancy, how and where you want to birth your baby.
To choose to pursue IVF if a baby is what you want.
To choose to be treated fairly and kindly if you have a loss or miscarriage.
As a woman and a mama of colour am a particular advocate of reproductive justice for women of colour especially as recent research has shown that black women are 5* more likely and Asian women 2* more likely to die in childbirth. (Based on 2019 MBRACE-UK report).
2020 Availability Dates - Doula Support
As birth can be a very variable process, I prefer to only take on a maximum of 1-2 birth clients per month so as to be able to give each client the right amount of undivided time and attention. As a result, availability can go quite fast. If you know that you would like a doula to support you either during an abortion or birth and feel like you want me to be that person then please get in touch as soon as you know. If you would like to book postnatal support (help with feeding, sleep or postnatal doula care) then please check out this page for availability.

As an abortion doula I understand that not every woman's reaction to being pregnant is a positive one.
My job is not to ask how or why, my job is simply to support you before, during and after your procedure for as long as is necessary.

Are you close to birth or already in labour and want a doula?
