My last pregnancy and unassisted birth have gotten me so excited! While I am not yet ready to have another of my own, I think it would be awesome to support other women through their journey, unassisted or otherwise. Does anyone know of a doula organization that is supportive or indifferent to UC? I am currently researching each organization to find out, but thought I would ask around to save some time. If I can't find one, I will just do the training and forgo the certification.

 

Thanks!

Looks like you might have to contact organizations individually. You wouldn't have to say why you're asking but just what their stance on UC is if they have one... Would be interesting to know...

I think you're right. I will update the thread after I have contacted them. =)
