    oh, and we used Suzanne Ryan and her doula Sarah during the birth of our baby and would strongly recommend both to anybody else who might be interested in home birth…they are a great team and have become good friends of ours :)

  2. Vanessa Lucas says:

    For the birth of our second daughter we used Brenda Frankenfeld. We absolutely loved her. She was very knowledgeable and gentle, and respected us and our birthing plan. This was our first home waterbirth, and we will never forget it!

    I have had the pleasure of using both Anita Woods and Amber Walla for both of my home waterbirths. They are both fabulous women! ( I had a vbac after 2 c-sections) They were an encouraging and calming presence. I believe I could do anything with those two women cheering me on!

  4. I am a CAPPA trained Labor Doula and Childbirth Educator and I would love to help any new moms along their awesome journey of new beginnings. My passion is to empower women to look within themselves and see they have all the makings of a healthy labor however they choose. I am in the process of certification and looking to help mothers who maybe can’t afford a fully certified doula. Everyone deserves to have a doula by their side in labor. Please contact me with any questions at nicole@belliesandbundles.com.

  5. I just saw your post on the happybottomus website. I love Brookie Lee. I am a labor doula and am always looking for women to help attend births when I cannot make it because of another birth. I am busy and turning away births often as I cant be at all of them, If you are interested in being an on call support I would be happy to meet with you and see if you are a good fit for my back up.
