Welcome to Full Spectrum Doulas

Full Spectrum Doulas is a growing collective of doulas and reproductive justice advocates who are working throughout the Pacific Northwest to bring the doula model of care to people across the full spectrum of pregnancy experiences, including abortion, adoption, surrogacy, miscarriage and stillbirth. Full Spectrum Doulas also plays a key role in national advocacy efforts to support grassroots full spectrum doula organizations across the country and to raise awareness about full spectrum doulas as a valuable support source for pregnant people.

Full Spectrum Doulas strive to foster a culture that trusts people and their inherent strength to make the best reproductive decisions for themselves. We believe that all individuals deserve access to supportive services along the full spectrum of pregnancy experiences and outcomes.

We invite you to explore our website for more information about volunteering with our organization, becoming a collaborative clinic, or receiving services from Full Spectrum Doulas.
