Our Vision, Mission, and Guiding Principles
We envision a world–free from stigma–that supports people in making the best sexual and reproductive health decisions for themselves. We envision a world where all people have access to safe reproductive health care and options, including doula care.
~full spectrum people, full spectrum experiences~
~a doula for every person, a doula in every person~
Full Spectrum Doulas provides nonjudgmental and compassionate support to people across the range of pregnancy and family planning experiences. By expanding doula care to include abortion, unintentional pregnancy loss and health care outside of a clinic setting, we offer free support to those who may not have access to informed and confidential doula care. With underserved and marginalized communities at the center of our work, we use public education, community-based direct service and coalition building to engage as strong advocates within the reproductive justice movement.
We honor and respect the diversity of each person’s unique reproductive experiences.
We trust that all pregnant people have the inherent strength to know what is best for themselves, their families, and their futures.
We are dedicated to collaboration, solidarity, and justice-oriented action towards social change within our communities.
We believe that a commitment to lifelong learning is essential to being successful doulas and we are always learning from our communities.
We actively cultivate diversity, not as an endpoint but as a process, to build strength and wisdom in our work.
We know that reproductive justice can only be achieved when people are treated with dignity and their decisions and experiences are honored.
