Natural Birth & Parenting Natural Birth & Parenting

Got a wonderful response from Doula

I was so worried about what will happen to my (then) 2 year old during the birth or our next baby and it's really been stressing me out.
I was worried that a doula might be turned off by the child care aspect of it.

So I randomly picked somebody local off the DONA lsit and inquired with her. Turns out she is a coordinator for a local Doula Organization!

I was so happy to read her reply:

I understand perfectly what your needs are, and believe me, you are not the first to make such a request.  I don't think you would have a problem finding  a doula that is willing to take on the role that you have described; it's really our mission to help you and support you have the kind of birth experience you want.  That means that we fill the capacity that YOU need us to fill.  Isn't that great?!
Isn't that supernice?! I am so relieved and excited now. :)
