Jezebel on supporting a friend through abortion, miscarriage

Jezebel recently published a blog post entitled How to Help a Friend Through an Abortion, a follow-up to another post about How to Help a Friend Deal with Miscarriage. It is heartening to see abortion and miscarriage discussed in a public platform in a way that highlights the uniqueness of everyone’s experiences, as well as the importance of a supporter, a listener, a friend. Sounds like a doula to me!

Abortion doulas do get a shout-out, though as Radical Doula notes, most abortion doulas work through partnerships with clinics, and less commonly as sought out through individuals.
