As a Doula, I am often asked if I only support natural birth.  This has been my tried and true response:

"I support my clients in any decision they make. My job as a Doula & Childbirth Educator is to educate, inform, & support.   In that order."

We support your choices.  We just strive to give you all the information and education we can so that you can make your decisions with true informed consent.  ;)

I am not. and I apologize if you feel that way.  I was using these things as an example of the type of philosophy and mission statement someone should be looking for.  Which most of these are dictated by my training.  I also noticed that you seem to have a problem with doulas in general and have singled me out to attack.  I have been very polite to you.  I am here to help many people by making helpful information and education available.  For your information, I live in a rural area, and I can only serve someone that lived no more than an hour away.  That's only 45-65 miles depending on the area.  And only a handful of hospitals that even deliver.  I have made no contacts through this forum.  And the statistical odds of anyone being in my area are nil on a national board.  Again, I apologize if it seemed that way to you.  I will once again re-write my post so as to be more clear.
