Relevant volunteer or advocacy work

my name is el lee and i am a full spectrum doula & birthworker based in the Bay Area. i am certified and trained through Roots of Labor Birth Collective and offer services aligning with their values of decolonial medicine and collective healing. it is my deep belief, rooted in my identity as a a queer, trans, chinese daughter of migrants that every body has the ability to foster a womb and access creation. i am affirming of both life and death, and the autonomy of full consent. i am present to accompany and advocate for you through transition in order to improve the outcome of your care, birth, abortion, or otherwise. my practice is queer, Person of Color, and access centered. i am an organizing member of Roots of Labor Birth Collective in Oakland, CA, through which i was primarily trained as a Full Spectrum Doula and birth advocate. i have also been trained and involved in QTPOC Birthwerq Project in Seattle, WA, as well as Frontline Medics, a community-based emergency response team, Ancestral Apothecary, an herbal school in Oakland, CA, and Lyon-Martin Health Services/Women's Community Clinic in San Francisco, CA as a Medical Assistant.

Fee Details

my services are sliding scale, in order to center birthing people who would not otherwise have access to doula services. The flat fee includes 2-3 prenatal visits, on-call for 2 weeks prior to EDD up until birth, and 2-3 postpartum visits.
