Abstract

This thesis is a feminist ethnography of abortion doulas, non-medical people who provide emotional, physical, and informational support to people terminating their pregnancy. I write as a volunteer doula and, taking an auto-ethnographic approach, contextualize the practice within the history of abortion politics, affect theory, and feminist activism to explore the potentialities of abortion doulas as revolutionary and creative activists within a reproductive justice movement under fire.
