Chula Doula Bodywork and Birth Services has the opportunity to attend the Women of Color Conference in Altlanta, Georgia from October 09-10th, 2009. I've been fortunate enough to have met Carol Downer back in June and have since developed a an even stronger connection to the Feminist Health Movement that began long before I was born. Since I've met Carol, she's been an unwavering support in my journey as a bodyworker, birth doula, assistant midwife, abortion counselor, and more than anything D.I.Y. Gynecology and Self-Examination Workshop leader. We recently went on a road trip to the bay area where I was able to teach a workshop to night in a row! Thanks to Riyana, a wonderful bodywork sister, we had a comfortable and beautiful space to learn and discover our cervix! Also, I toured the Women's Health Specialists in Sacramento and witnessed Feminist health workers in action. Total inspiration. So thankful for woman led health care.
