Doulas in Colo Springs/Pueblo area
Other than that, a great place to find Colorado Springs doulas is www.csdoulas.com
Personally, I have had experience with both VBAC and Hypnobabies clients. I have even take a full Hypnobirthing course, which I know is a little bit different, but none the less...
OP do you already have a vbac accepting midwife down there? If so will you pm me the name or contact info?
BTW, did you know that it is still legal to have VBAC's at home in Colorado? Under certain qualifying conditions, of course. The Department of Regulatory Agencies states that to have a midwife perform a VBAC at home, at least 18 months must have elapsed since your last cesarean delivery AND that if you have had two or more cesarean section deliveries, you must also have had at least one vaginal delivery to be eligible to have a midwife perform a VBAC at home.
|AND that if you have had two or more cesarean section deliveries, you must also have had at least one vaginal delivery to be eligible to have a midwife perform a VBAC at home.|
There are some midwives in the area willing to work around this stipulation. Just FYI.
IMO...if the law were really concerned about the risk of rupture and the number of c/s scars it would mandate that no one could have HBAC if they had more than 1 scar. The law is really saying...unless you're "proven" you don't get to try. It's really (again IMO) a $$ thing and less about the health of the mom. Regardless of the need for a c/s in the first place.
Sorry for the vent. I guess I kinda hijacked my own thread.
I cam across this thread from a couple of years ago, and I am now the one in need of help. :-( I need to find a "dedicated" midwife and doula to work with for a home birth in Penrose. I've been making plans to go to Oklahoma to have this baby, but am at the point of knowing that I should not have to leave the state to have my baby and that it should be my choice how and where I have my baby. I am a young, healthy mom that is just having to avoid the stupidities that have encroached into present day care for women. Please HELP!
Thanks so much!
