Yes, this class is a little more specific on spirituality and Christian based. So, if you are looking for something generic - this is not the class for you. You may work with any client or mama with this course - you can work with any religion.
We do think that anyone who has had an abortion should be treated with respect and have a chance to follow bereavement - so in that aspect we will honor this mother in her sorrow. However, we will not allow our doulas to attend or take part of an abortion procedure. Thank you.
We may add in a module or separate training on helping post-abortive mothers like above more in future. Thank you.
