I'm 10 weeks pregnant with my first baby and planning a natural and unmedicated birth at a freestanding birth center in Sanford, FL.
I am a doula, so obviously I really appreciate the importance of having the support of a doula, especially since this is my first baby. I'm planning on doing Hypnobabies, so a doula that is familiar with Hypnobabies would be ideal.
My husband and I are career missionaries, and we'll be moving permanently to Kosovo next fall. Right now we're going through training and doing fundraising, so we have very little in the way of finances. We're on medicaid to pay for the midwifery care, but we just can't find a way to afford a doula on our own.
If you are or know of any doulas that might be willing to take us on free of charge or deeply discounted, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much!

Hello, my name is teresa and I am studying and working on becoming a doula. it is a passion of mine and has been for many years. I have a total of 6 children and 4 grandchildren. The two oldest are my stepchildren, i've raised since they were little. my youngest is 4. i'm admittedly still learning and i'm not aware of hypnobabies, but would be happy to go over it with you and learn. i ve had 4 natural births and helped two friends and one of my daughters with their births. i also breastfed all of my babies. For the experience and a reference if you are pleased with the outcome, i would be happy to meet with you and see if we can work out something to help. With you being a doula also, we would probably be a great asset for each other. i am located in apopka. if you are still in need of a doula, just let me know and we can arrange a time to meet and see if it's a fit. teresa
