Shawna Queen, Full Spectrum Doula

I am a queer full spectrum doula, educator and reproductive rights advocate centering my work around harm reduction for pregnant people in Detroit. Full spectrum doula support spans all pregnancy outcomes, naturally including abortion. Becoming a full spectrum doula happened organically for me and over the years I have learned how much impact can be made just by showing up for your community. I believe in breaking down barriers to healing and wellness, so I meet people where they are with empathy, respect and a trauma informed lens. In addition to doula work I also teach childbirth education, host workshops for support professionals and facilitate peer support groups. When I'm not working I'm at home in my garden with my dogs and my partner, cooking, herb crafting, reading, meditating or volunteering on RAINN's online hotline as crisis support.
