I have gone back and forth wiith this for a few months. I have been a doula for almost 7 years now. In the past I have taken 2-3 clients per month depending on my own families needs. I am just wondering how many mommas do you all take per month and what are the reasons behind that number? Personally I have had 5 clients in the last month(totally a fluke, one was back up for another doula, one was a shared friend with another doula, I had 3 original clients, one of whom went earlier, allowing me to take the last!) None of them went at the same time, two in one week though. Normally I 'want' 2 clients a month and will take up to 3 if the dates work out!
