About Us

The Boston Doula Project provides free, compassionate and empowering support to people experiencing abortion. We promote the doula model of physical, emotional, spiritual and informational support for people throughout the full spectrum of reproductive experiences.

Get Support

We offer help, care, and support to you during your abortion. Contact us to set up doula care, either at home or at your clinic appointment. Our doulas provide: physical, emotional, spiritual, and informational support. All services are free of charge.

Contact Us

You can reach us by email at bostondoulaproject@gmail.com or by phone at 617-971-8476. After you speak with a volunteer, they will reach out to our collective of doulas and get back to you shortly.

Birth, Postpartum, & Adoption Doulas

Although Boston Doula Project focuses on abortion support, many of our volunteers are trained in other areas as well. If you’re interested in birth, postpartum, or adoption doula support, reach out and we may be able to pair you with a doula.


Whether you’re looking for a helpline, more information on family planning, or financial support for an abortion, we have a list of resources that you may find helpful.

Get Involved

From getting trained as one of our doulas, to volunteering with us, to supporting our work financially, there are several ways you can get involved with the Boston Doula Project.

Save the Date!

We are planning our next abortion doula training for new volunteers! It will be held on the evening of Friday, August 25 and continue with two 8-hour days on Saturday, August 26-Sunday, August 27. We will post a link to the training application later this month. Child care and Spanish interpretation will be provided.


Despite little advance notice, the BDP doulas have been highly responsive to our referrals, providing support in our clinics, in patients’ homes, with them on public transportation to and from procedures, and by phone. The doulas are sensitive to our patients’ multicultural backgrounds, as well as to our professional medical culture. We are grateful for the valuable services of the BDP, which enhance our ability to provide safe, compassionate abortion care.
