Our country needs abortion doulas and practical support volunteers now more than ever.  


Practical support organizations and nonprofits need people who are trained and knowledgeable about abortion to hire and to bring on as volunteers. 


Communities need people who know how to help each other get access to safe abortion care.


Are you ready to support your community?


If you’ve been wanting to support your community more, be part of the reproductive justice movement, and ensure people you know (and friends of friends) are able to get abortion access… 

and you're looking for a meaningful way to make a difference given the abortion bans and restrictions across the US and beyond… 


 Then The Abortion Companion Collective was created for you!


In The Abortion Companion Collective you’ll learn: 

 + The history of reproductive justice advocacy and intersectionality in feminist spaces. 


+ All things abortion from what types of abortions that are available and how people get access to these types of abortions. 


+ How to support people through a self-managed abortion with abortion medication. 


+ How to keep yourself and your clients digitally safe and secure. 


+ How to center and care for people getting abortions.


+ How to have mindfulness around client’s spiritual practices and abortions.

What's Included in this Program?

The main program consists of 8 workshops plus bonus workshops for your continued education

Workshop 1 - Reproductive Justice & Advocacy - We'll go over intersectional feminism and antiracism work as these are the core understandings needed to be the best abortion companion you can be. Unlocking our biases is important for this work. We'll also discuss how abortion doulas/companions are some of the best advocates for reproductive justice and social change.

Workshop 2 - Abortion 101 & Values Exploration - In this workshop we'll cover all the types of abortions there are, help you get started on researching what is available in your community. We'll also help you identify your core values so you can live those values as your support abortion seekers and advocate for them.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why does this program cost money?

Courtney and Kimra have considerable amounts of experience supporting people in all pregnancy outcomes as birth and abortion doulas. We believe that birth workers and abortion workers deserve to be compensated for their work and expertise. 


Our work as abortion doulas has been unpaid labor in our communities (which are restricted access states) and putting our energy into a program like this is how we will be able to continue supporting our abortion having peers at no cost. Your payment to this program serves the community at large. 

Does this program have scholarships?

Yes, we are offering 20 scholarships for the June/July round of this program. Email abortionbruja@proton.me to apply for a scholarship. 

I don't live in a restricted access state. Is this program for me?

Absolutely it is. Abortion doulas from all around the country support abortion havers, digitally, throughout the country.
