The Ottawa Abortion Doula Collective is a group of pro-choice, feminist volunteers who support people in Ottawa and the surrounding area through their abortions. Our services are non-judgemental, compassionate, inclusive and free.
We do this work because the stigma around abortion is real (and it sucks) — and many people aren’t comfortable asking family or friends for a ride or for their help throughout the abortion process. But people seeking abortions deserve support, and we want to make sure they get it.
To help us find our feet and cover the costs of providing support, we are launching this GoFundMe campaign. Donations will go towards covering the costs of gas and taxi fare (to get people to and from appointments), parking, printing costs and other miscellaneous expenses.
Thank you for any support you can provide to help us continue to offer support to people seeking abortions!
We are a small grassroots collective that works informally. As we do not have a bank account, donations will be withdrawn into the personal account of the group's treasurer (Sarah Hedges-Chou).
We provide these services as volunteers. Funds will be used strictly for expenses incurred providing abortion doula support. This includes: gas money, parking fees, printing costs, taxi fare, and other miscellaneous expenses.
