A new toolkit aims to educate and train doulas in 2SLGBTQ+ birthing people and their families, while also increasing the number of queer-identifying doulas in Nova Scotia. Stephen Wentzell attended the launch and spoke with some of the driving forces behind the project.
Media release: Wellness Within: An Organization for Health and Justice invite all to join us for the official launch of the Queer Doula Toolkit, by zoom on June 17 at 730pm AT.
Women incarcerated in the Nova Institution for Women in Truro have not had access to volunteer doula services since June of this year. As a result women may well be at risk of losing their babies, says the coordinator of the partnership that used to provide the doula services.
