About me

My name is Abby Jorgensen, and I live in South Bend, Indiana. I am a trained bereavement doula, a certified labor doula, and a PhD candidate in sociology. I’m also a wife, mom, dog/cat/chicken owner, and Trekkie.

In my work as a Ph.D. candidate, I study fertility ideals and intentions, the transition into parenthood, and their impacts on politics. In my work as a doula, I provide a listening ear and resources. In both of these roles, I strive to enact my belief in the dignity of the human person.
