Donate to my work, practice, and training!

I am a queer, nonbinary, disabled doula providing birth and postpartum services in Chicago. As a white doula, I am committed to offering discounted or free services to all Black & Indigenous clients. I also offer linkage to doulas with clients’ shared identities and monetary assistance for clients to afford services from those doulas. Please consider donating to help me attend further trainings as I work on expanding my practice to offer full spectrum doula services.

Current fundraiser: Full spectrum doula training with specialized courses!

Full spectrum doula training is an extensive process that expands services from focusing mainly on birth to offering support on all types of reproductive health, including miscarriage and stillbirth support, lactation services, and postpartum support. I am looking to take courses in chestfeeding for trans individuals, birth for disabled folks, and deepening the education I already have in antiracist doula work. I am working towards certification as a childbirth educator and lactation consultant.

Babymamahood

Juju Angeles is doula and midwife practicing in NYC and the Bay Area. In Juju’s words, “It is through communal-ancestral knowing, intuition, and experience that I serve all of my clients. I guide people into deepening their trust and their love for their bodies through the birth process, so that they can heal optimally. I believe that the body knows how to give birth, how to heal, and what to do.”
