I'm certain Marlene would try to be of assistance, and she is easy to discuss options with. She serves Athens/Athens County and beyond and is a very experienced midwife.
womenswisdom, I can not see the original poster's posts....so I have no idea what brought discomfort/bad taste, whatever....but, even though (and unfortunate) communication with the poster went a little south- it was kind of you to share what you did, and (imo)I think it was solidly good info and meaningful.
God bless you both

yes, if fact I will be in Athens doing prenatals tomorrow, & back again for the Athens Birth Circle on Weds. I wasn't sure why doula was in quotes, since the 1st post was deleted, but the reply leads me to think you are not really looking for a doula, but a midwife. I can be either. Again, my # is 740-710-1218. give me a call if you are still wanting a doula, monitrice or midwife.
I am also confused by the reference to a doula costing $3500, most of the midwives I know charge far less than that, let alone the doulas! That price is way off the mark!
